Investing in Women and Girls

The Community Fund for Women & Girls supports organizations which meaningfully impact women and girls and evaluates all requests for funding through a gender-specific grantmaking framework. As the region’s grantmaker focused on women and girls, the Fund supports gender-specific programming and advocacy initiatives.

“Since 1995, more than $1.3 million has been awarded to support women and girls' programs.”
