Grants In Action

Grants in Action allow our members to witness the work we are supporting firsthand. 

The relationship between Women's Fund members and our grantees is not over when a nonprofit has been awarded a grant. Keeping members informed of our grantees’ progress through online Site Visits is part of our rigorous grantmaking process.

Educational Forums also allow us to fulfill an important part of our mission: to educate and inspire women to engage in making lasting change in our community. By learning more about the ongoing challenges facing our neighbors, we can learn how to better target our dollars.
