The Women’s Fund is committed to supporting groundbreaking solutions to complex problems facing women and children and to being a catalyst for enduring change. Our initiatives are:

  • Financial Literacy for women and children

  • Out of School STEAM programs aimed to improve academic performance

  • Mental Health programs/projects serving children in Shawnee County

Each fall, non-profit organizations are invited to make proposals for projects that align with our initiatives in one-on-one interviews with the Women’s Fund Grant Committee. Select organizations are then invited to submit a full RFP for consideration.  Final grant decisions for the current cycle will be made in late January, 2018.

If your organization would like to be contacted for future grant opportunities, please email Kathy Smith, Director of Community Investment at
