Grants of up to $5,000 per year and grants of up to $15,000 per year to Ohio organizations for programs and services that improve the lives and economic status of women and girls in the Greater Cincinnati region. Funding is intended for programs that enhance women's self-sufficiency by focusing on employment and living wages, training and education, and childcare. Two types of grants are available: program grants and system-level grants.

The Fund focuses on women and their families who are between minimum wage and self-sufficient wage (about $20/hr). Grants will be considered for programs that serve this population and clearly address barriers that prevent them from achieving economic self-sufficiency. 

Grant types:

  • Program Grants: Preference is given to women’s economic self-sufficiency issues in the areas of training/education, living wage issues, employment (specifically for employed women making between minimum wage and self-sufficient wage) and childcare (accessible, quality and affordable). Additional preference is given to proposals that respond to the needs expressed by women from the Foundation's Cohear advisory group, most prominently programs building social capital for women experiencing poverty.
  • Systems-Level Grants: These grants can support an organization in its efforts to fundamentally change and/or improve the way it understands and collects data or delivers its mission.
