“The Women's Fund brings women in our community together. Members respond to the needs in our community, and then vote to support projects that meet those needs,” according to a written release from the organization. “We have something to contribute, and by pooling our contributions, we have the power to make high-impact gifts that can affect significant, positive change. We are committed to maximizing the impact of women's philanthropy by pooling our resources to provide grants to local organizations benefiting women and children in our community. Our four areas of focus are education, health issues, human services and art and culture.”
