About this funder:



The Women’s Fund is a powerful force for women in the Hamilton area! The Fund not only raises money for women’s programs, but seeks to involve as many women as possible.

The Women’s Endowment Fund of the Hamilton Community Foundation was established in 1997 as a fund committed to promote philanthropy among women and to establish a permanent, expanding endowment dedicated to the needs of women and girls in Butler County. Grant making provides assistance to programs which encourage the advancement and full participation of women and girls in the community, help them achieve their full potential, and create opportunities for economic, educational and personal growth.

Since 1997, the Women’s Fund has provided grants to benefit several area organizations. The Women’s Fund is a partnership of donors, volunteers, and staff, working to support programs for women and girls. The Women’s fund support projects and programs which promote the well-being of women of all ages ~ Intellectual ~ Physical ~ Social ~Cultural ~Economic.

The Women’s Fund Mission is to promote philanthropy among women and to establish a permanent, expanding endowment dedicated to the needs of women and girls in Butler County.

Grant Priorities

The Women’s Fund is very concerned about accountability and sustainability of programs. Organizations should have a diversified funding base. We are interested in innovative programs that are responsive to community needs, partnerships and collaborative efforts. Lower priority is given to equipment requests, requests to pay staff for existing services, and duplication of existing services.
