The Women’s Fund was established as a permanent endowment to expand chances and choices for Lorain County women and children through financial and funding equity for projects that may not receive monies from traditional sources of funding. It supports social, educational, and artistic projects by, for, and delivered to women and children to encourage the full participation of women and children in the community. Since its inception in 1991, the Women’s Fund has invested over $200K in community grants for women and children in Lorain County.
