Grants to Indiana nonprofit organizations to provide resources and improve conditions for women and girls in eligible regions. Applicants must submit an LOI prior to applying. Program areas include economic mobility, domestic violence prevention, and mental health services. Applicants may request programming or operating support. Funding is intended to support activities in Central Indiana, which includes Boone, Hamilton, Hancock, Hendricks, Johnson, Marion, Morgan, and Shelby Counties.

Women’s Fund of Central Indiana was established in 1996 as a permanent endowment whose income will support programs and organizations working to improve conditions and opportunities for women and girls.

Women’s Fund is particularly interested in funding programming in the following areas:

  • Breaking negative cycles and moving to economic mobility (especially regarding poverty and violence against women)
  • Programming for girls that is preventive and has a demonstrated impact.
  • Programming that demonstrates an awareness of and/or provision of mental health services for women and girls.
  • Concept Proposals for operating support will be accepted only from organizations whose mission is to serve women and/or girls or from organizations for whom females constitute a significant majority of individuals served.
  • Women’s Fund is interested only in gender-specific efforts, not just programs that happen to serve women and/or girls.

Applicants are encouraged to use Indiana Institute for Working Families resources to better understand the impact of poverty on women and girls.

Women’s Fund will support organizations and programs specifically designed to meet the needs of women and girls which demonstrate:

  • Significant Impact
  • Fiscal Responsibility
  • Innovation/Creativity
  • CollaborationOutreach to Traditionally Underserved Populations
  • Potential for Matching Funds (this is a bonus, not an expectation)
