about the Women's Fund

WHO ARE WE?

The Women’s Fund is an initiative to bring women together for the purpose of “making a positive impact on the lives of women and children of South Central Kentucky, now and forever” by collectively funding significant grants to charitable initiatives with the same purpose.

WHAT IS A FUND?

The Women’s Fund is both a permanent endowment fund and a nonpermanent fund established to benefit women and children. The fund is managed and invested within the Community Foundation of South Central Kentucky. The permanent fund is building a legacy that will impact the lives of women and children in our area forever! The nonpermanent fund provides a significant grant to make an immediate difference in the community.

HOW ARE FUNDS GRANTED?

At the end of each grant cycle, an annual dinner of the membership is held, where grantee finalists are invited to make a presentation about their funding request. Each member of the Women’s Fund will cast one (1) vote in person or by proxy at the annual dinner. The recipient of the impact grant will be determined by majority vote of the fund members. The awards will be announced and awarded that day.
