What we fund

Investing in women creates stronger families and communities.

Through its endowment, the Women’s Fund of the Greater Green Bay Community Foundation supports programs that expand opportunities for local women and girls. Since 1995, the Women’s Fund has awarded more than $1.5 million to empower women and inspire girls throughout Northeast Wisconsin.

*The term ‘women and girls’ includes anyone who identifies as a woman or a girl.

Funding Priorities Include:

  • Programs that encourage and develop self-esteem and leadership in women and girls, especially those ages 9-15.
  • Programs uniquely designed or specifically geared to women or girls, or for their particular challenges or situations.
  • Imaginative, results-oriented projects. These may be ongoing, expansions, or modifications of existing programs.
  • Sustainable programs.
  • Programs resulting in measurable, positive change in our community.
  • Projects that demonstrate women and girls served are involved in planning and implementation of the projects and programs.
