Grants + Scholarships
What would YOU do with $5,000?
That’s what we are asking area agencies interested in applying for a grant from The Women’s Fund. Our work is informed by the needs of the community and we want to know where the greatest opportunities are impacting women’s economic self-sufficiency relative to our key focus areas:
- Living wage
- Training and Education
Because of the generosity of our donors, The Women’s Fund has granted nearly $1 million since 2004 to programs and projects that help women in Greater Cincinnati. From the beginning our focus has been on systemic change that will, in time, yield impact for the entire region. See the our list of past grants.
This year we are pleased to offer grants up to $5,000 to continue improving the lives of women and families in our area. We are now accepting applications through May 1, 2017!
