Where to Give

There are a number of ways to make a lasting impact in the central Indiana community. Learn more about the different Women’s Fund of Central Indiana funds.

Partners Fund
Support of our Partners Fund helps Women’s Fund fuel our mission to mobilize people, ideas and investments so every women and girl in our community has an equitable opportunity to reach her full potential – no matter place, race or identity. Your support allows us to strategically prioritize funding to what area or project is needed most at a given time.
Equity Partners
Equity Partners is a special group of people, companies and organizations championing our mission of equitable opportunity for every woman and girl in our community—no matter place, race or identity. Your support will allow us to invest in community initiatives and equip our staff and board with resources to create equity and dismantle systemic racism. Our Equity Partners will receive special benefits and additional opportunities for engagement.
Contributions to the endowment ensure Women’s Fund has a permanent, flexible and unrestricted resource to meet the changing needs of women and girls in central Indiana. Each year 5% of the interest income is used by the Grants Committee to make thoughtful investments in organizations lifting up women and girls in our community. For more information, see our Grants page.
Legacy Giving
A legacy gift allows you to create a lasting charitable impact for the public good. It is a philanthropic gift from your will, living trust, retirement plan, or other estate assets. Some planned gifts even provide you with income during your or someone else’s lifetime. Anyone can leave a legacy gift—no matter the size of your estate.
OPTIONS Alumnae Scholarship
This scholarship was created by OPTIONS Class 1 for the benefit of women, of all ages, who face significant barriers to a college education. The fund currently has the capacity to offer a four-year full ride to a public institution in Indiana once every four years. It is anticipated the next application dates will be spring of 2024, 2028 and 2032; however, continued contributions to this fund will allow the scholarships to be given more frequently.
Donor Advised Funds
Support of Existing Funds helps Women’s Fund invest in projects and strategies within our initiatives that require community-wide investment.
