Women's Fund: Empowering Women & Inspiring Girls
Bring women together and there is no limit to what they can accomplish.
Women’s Funds throughout the country believe by investing in women and girls they can accelerate positive change in communities. The more than a dozen Women’s Funds in the state of the Wisconsin have adopted the same philosophy. They provide grants to support initiatives and community programs that impact ladies of all ages.
According to Lori Namur, executive director of Fond du Lac Area Women’s Fund, Women’s Fund organizations in Wisconsin have more than $10 million in assets that are leveraged across the state to improve the lives of women and girls.
Each Women’s Fund is dedicated to influencing the lives of females, but how they each go about this is unique. They may prioritize education or leadership or safety — responding to needs or trends in their community.
