Women are not just a leading force in philanthropy, women are its future. As philanthropists, women have an unprecedented opportunity to steer the course of the Mahoning Valley by changing not only what is funded, but how money is raised and distributed.
The Fund for Women and Girls serves to expand women’s philanthropy while bringing attention and funding to gender equality. The Fund is an investment in the development and leadership of women and girls, ensuring the vitality and vibrancy of our community. Permanently endowed, the Fund pools gifts from philanthropic-minded individuals, grows those gifts and reinvests in the community through thoughtful and targeted grantmaking or partnerships.
In June of 2002, a contribution was made in recognition of the retirement of Barbara Amstutz to establish The Fund for Women and Girls. The Fund continues striving to become the area’s primary resource for focused grantmaking for local women and girls.
