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.

  • A donation of $25.00 helps us to purchase books for askable adults and other educational trainings.
  • An investment of $50.00 supports our efforts to increase birth control and STD testing and treatment access across Nebraska and into southwest Iowa.
  • A gift of $70.00 covers mileage for our advocacy team to meet with policymakers in Lincoln.
  • Your donation of $100.00 ensures domestic violence survivors have a safe place in an emergency situation.
  • Your generous gift of $215.00 helps us close the pay gap that has, on average, a woman earning only $785 for every $1,000 earned by a man in Nebraska.

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.
