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. 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 2002, a contribution was made in recognition of the retirement of Barbara Amstutz to establish The Fund for Women and Girls. The Fund strives to promote and fund initiatives and unique endeavors that highlight the power and capacity of women and girls.
*NEW* Grant Opportunity
Funding is available for projects and initiatives that benefit women and girls in the Mahoning Valley. Local nonprofit organizations, community groups and individuals working with a qualified fiscal sponsor are welcome to apply.
