Issues We Support
Women's Fund is an expert resource, focusing our funding on issues necessary to the success of women and girls in central Indiana.
Our funding is currently focused on the following three priorities: caregiving, domestic violence and insufficient income. Our ongoing interest also includes health and self-development. Our research shows these issues are central to women and girls achieving success, overcoming obstacles, and strengthening our entire community.
Women are often responsible for their children as well as caring for aging parents or other adult relatives. We are focused on increasing access to affordable, high-quality care, which can be a barrier to a woman's self-sufficiency.
Domestic violence impacts women and their families and has no boundary by race, age, income, or socioeconomic status. We are focused on addressing immediate needs by keeping women and their families safe, and to stopping the cycle of violence through preventative education.
Women often lack access to resources helping them gain self-sufficiency, such as job skills training and employment placement services. We are focused on helping women become self-sufficient without depending on the goodwill of others.
Girls often do not have access to gender-specific programming, which is important to self development and learning about gender equity and female empowerment from an early age. We are focused on providing options and opportunities to girls in central Indiana.
of Greater Indianapolis
"While monetary support is always critical to any organization's success, we have been particularly appreciative of the thoughtfulness behind Women's Fund's support of Girls Inc. Jennifer and her staff ask timely questions to help them determine how support from Women's Fund might be best positioned at any given time. Sometimes their conversations lead them to direct their funding towards core operating support, or sustainable capacity building efforts so that we may become better positioned to serve girls in greater Indianapolis. We value this unique relationship with Women's Fund and are grateful for its strategic support of our mission to inspire all girls to be strong, smart, and bold!"
