Grants + Scholarships

Grants are how The Women's Fund of The Greater Cincinnati Foundation invests in our community.

Women's Fund GrantsOur very first grants were awarded in 2004 when nonprofits were selected to receive a total of $35,000. From the beginning, we have focused on systemic change that will, in time, yield impact for our entire region.

Because of the generosity of our donors, $1 million has been granted to Greater Cincinnati programs and projects that help women. See the list of projects we have funded.

Grant Process

Our mini-grant ($500 - $2,000) cycle has funded organizations that provide services and programming to improve the lives and economic status of women and girls in the Greater Cincinnati region. Our grants focus on supporting systemic efforts to improve women’s incomes, job security and their ability to provide adequately for themselves and their families.
