Community Foundation Women's Fund Endowment
 

Your Gifts Enable Effective Women’s Fund Grants

Earlier this year donations into the Women’s Fund were used to make a wide variety of grants to promote educational, economic, social, and political equality for women

Grants were made to OAR for empowerment workshops, Advocacy Center for new washer and dryer at their shelter, Catholic Charities for immigrant services, and Tompkins Learning Partners for math workshops.  Additional grants go to Southside Community Center for two girl empowerment programs, Natural Leaders Initiative for peer internships, to Women’s Opportunity Center to assist women in job training, and to Ithaca Free Clinic for its women’s health services.  The grants package is completed by grants to Finger Lakes Independence Center for an Asian women’s brochure, Cancer Resource Center for wigs and beauty products for cancer survivors, and to Tompkins Community Action for linen and house wares for its new supportive living residence for women.
