Grants of up to $20,000 to Ohio, Kentucky, and Indiana organizations in eligible counties for programs and services that improve the lives of women and girls. Funding is intended for programs that enhance women's self-sufficiency by focusing on employment, childcare, education and training, and living wages. Eligible applicants are located in the Greater Cincinnati region, including Hamilton, Butler, Warren, and Clermont Counties in Ohio; Dearborn County in Indiana; and Kenton, Campbell, and Boone Counties in Kentucky.

This year the Foundation is designating all its grant funding to support organizational transformation to benefit gender and racial equity in the region and within the organizations that work on key issues areas within the self-sufficiency space.

The Women's Fund would like to support organizations in their efforts to improve their operations, build their capacity or invest in initiatives that could change the landscape for issues of women’s self-sufficiency in our region. Capacity building proposals could include technology/ software upgrades, trainings/ continued education for staff, staff capacity, organization equity assessments, research/data collection, etc. Ideal proposals will include a focus on gender and racial equity within your organization, help you better serve the community with a gender and racial lens and/or help your organization fund a systemic level intervention that improves self-sufficiency for women.

Ideal proposals will demonstrate how the funds will be used to fundamentally change a system or way of operating at your organization of which the change will outlast the funding investment.

Some examples:

  • Organization X used the investment to implement a new database which will allow agency results to be reported by race and gender. The new reporting helped the agency discover disparate program completion rates for women of color and now they are examining the design of their programs to address this gap.
  • Organization Y used the investment to conduct a gender and racial equity audit for their staff and invest in the recommendations. Because of this audit, they better understand the work experience for different groups of employees and have changed their hiring practices to be more inclusive and equitable.
  • Organization Z is creating a social enterprise to address a particular barrier for women in their pursuit of economic mobility and they need to invest in a feasibility study before they launch their initiative.
