news Grant Recipients
On May 6, 2020, the Women’s Fund awarded grants to nine local nonprofits totaling $685,000 from membership donations collected during 2019. These grants bring the total awarded to local nonprofits to nearly $7.9 million since the Women’s Fund was founded in 2004.
Supported by Women's Fund grants, the remarkable organizations described below will increase the number of under served neighbors who have access to sight-restoring eye care and provide a state-of-the-art STEAM lab to inspire elementary school children. These grants will expand the reach of medical services and the healing power of a shower for our homeless population. They will provide services that enable seniors to live safely in their homes and have access to timely transportation services when they need them. They will provide legal services to help keep immigrant families together and bring the wonder of a library to children and families in local parks, community centers and neighborhoods.
