The Women's Fund

Through leadership, research and policy advocacy, the Women’s Fund works to identify and address employment barriers affecting working women and their families.

Our mission is to ensure the economic self-sufficiency of women in the Greater Cincinnati area and ignite a shared desire to improve it. We focus on child care, employment, living wage, and training and education interventions for women and their families at a systems level.

Our Impact


2022 was a year of strengthening our team and pursuing our potential through advocacy, research, and civic engagement. Your Women's Fund is mobilized and ready for 2023 and beyond!


Why Women?

Women are disproportionately affected by poverty, as they tend to hold jobs in low-paying sectors and bear greater responsibility for caregiving in their family. In our region, nearly 18% of women are living in poverty and 69% of the children in poverty reside in a single female-headed household. The Federal Poverty Level is not a true representation of who is struggling financially as families continue to be economically vulnerable until they reach self-sufficiency levels (generally 200%-250% of the Federal Poverty Level) or more. We believe, and research shows, by improving the circumstances for women, the entire community will benefit.
