What We Do

Every time a woman has the opportunity to become a leader, to earn enough money to support their family or to escape a violent relationship, our community becomes a little stronger and more vibrant. And we come a little closer to realizing our vision of a community where every woman and girl has the opportunity to reach their full potential. Our work aligns with our values of equity, bold impact, collaboration, community voice, intersectionality and bodily autonomy.

Our Mission:
The Women’s Fund addresses gender-based inequities in our community through collaboration that identifies, researches and creates solutions to advance, educate and fund lasting impact.

Our Vision:
A community where all women and girls have the opportunity to reach their full potential.

How We Discuss Gender:
Women and girls includes anyone who identifies as a woman or girl. Our work, including funding and advocacy efforts, is inclusive of all individuals, including transgender and gender expansive people, that experience gender oppression.
