The Women’s Fund was established to provide a collective fund for women to get directly involved in reviewing, evaluating and recommending grant awards to the Community Foundation’s board. The Fund is structured as a pooled donor advised fund of the Foundation with a minimum donation of $100.
Members are active in grant-making. They have the opportunity to broadly review grant applications that cover all areas of community need and vote to recommend funding for a wide variety of local projects.
The Women’s Fund has existed for ten years and has granted $117,000 to a wide variety of community needs. Pooling resources enables larger grant making which in turn, has greater impact.
