Grant Application Process

Only 1.6% of charitable giving is directed towards organizations that focus on women and girls, despite an overwhelming need. The Women’s Fund has invested over a million dollars to non-profits that support the needs of women in our eight-county service area: Boone, Butler, Campbell, Clermont, Dearborn, Hamilton, Kenton and Warren Counties.

We offer two types of grant opportunities:

  1. Systemic grants offering operational support
  2. Programmatic grants for services impacting women’s economic self-sufficiency

We typically open our grant applications in the summer.
