By helping women improve their lives, we also strengthen families and communities.
Through our Fund for Women & Girls, philanthropists are coming together to invest in sustainable solutions that support the safety, health and economic security of women and girls across Fairfield County. As part of the larger women’s movement, the Fund makes a greater impact by partnering in national coalitions such as Women’s Funding Network and Prosperity Together – working for progress on issues like closing the pay gap and creating pathways to economic security for low-income women and families.
What we do
Through scholarships, coaching and more, we support adult students to persist and pursue degrees that lead to family-sustaining employment.
Through Girls Circle Trainings, Leadership Camps and Summits, we empower the next generation of leaders.
We award $600K+ annually to help women and girls meet health and safety needs, build self-esteem, and develop job and life skills.
We inspire and engage philanthropists to support women and girls in our community through this event, featuring trailblazing keynote speakers.
Created by women, for women.
