2010 Grants Announced

by Kelly Young

It was exciting to be a part of the Women's Fund grants announcement on Monday - and to learn more about the $331,000 granted to 18 organizations throughout central Indiana. What an incredible impact that will make for women and girls in our community. Staying true to their core issues, the grants have been distributed to organizations focused on caregiving, domestic violence and insufficient income. Additionally, Women's Fund invested some dollars into its long-term interests of health and self-development. These grants will help fund, among other things, before and after school programming for girls, teen and adolescent violence prevention programs, health screenings for women and programs for refugee women.

As you can imagine, the Women’s Fund Grants Committee carefully reviewed each application, keeping in the forefront the critical issues facing women and girls in our community, and made a very thoughtful and strategic recommendation to the Board (visit the blog on Thursday for a behind the scenes look at the granting process). Based on the committee’s input, the Women’s Fund Advisory Board approved the funding of these 18 organizations:

Thank you, Women's Fund. As one of your donors, I'm glad to know you are responsive and committed to supporting the needs of women and girls in my community. For readers of this blog, visit regularly as we plan to write about some of these organizations and how they are using their grant to strengthen and improve the community by supporting women and girls.
