Where to Give

You can choose from three options when donating to Women’s Fund of Central Indiana.

Operating and Programs: Gifts to our Operating Fund support the roles, goals, and objectives defined in our strategic plan including Women’s Fund philanthropic and leadership programs, and events like Night of 100 Women and Power of Women.

Endowment: Gifts to our Endowment Fund help define our grantmaking dollars for the following year. In 2023, we awarded $450,000 to 23 not-for-profits. One grant in particular was awarded to A Seat at the Table for their Safe Space 2.0 Teen Girl program, which is focused on creating a weekly safe space for 25 low-to-moderate income high school girls of color. The program will address mental trauma, healthy relationships, self-advocacy, and positive body image.

OPTIONS Alumnae Scholarship Fund: The OPTIONS Alumnae Scholarship Fund was created in 2000 by OPTIONS Class One. Through the power of collective giving, nine women have been able to pursue college degrees that may not otherwise have been possible. The scholarship is awarded to one student every four years; we are thrilled to be able to name a new scholarship recipient in 2024.

Irving Moxley Springer Society

Individuals who make planned gifts for the benefit of Women’s Fund are recognized as members of the Irving Moxley Springer Society, as well as the Heritage Circle Society for everyone who makes a planned gift to benefit CICF or any of the affiliate organizations or funds.  The first planned gift to Women’s Fund was from Frank Springer who made the contribution of his wife, Irving Moxley Springer (1915 – 1990) who he said would have been deeply engaged in the work of Women’s Fund if it were in existence during her lifetime.
