The Fund for Women is an endowment at the Delaware Community Foundation whose mission is to provide funding to enhance the worth and potential of women and girls in Delaware by bringing together the collective philanthropic power of women. The endowment is funded when new founders pledge to give $1,000 over a five-year period.

The fund has awarded nearly $1.8 million in grants since 1993. In 2013, the fund awarded $128,904 to 12 agencies supporting projects that help women and girls avoid abuse and poverty, improve their physical and mental health, and gain financial independence.

The Delaware Community Foundation manages charitable funds for individuals, families, businesses and organizations, and distributes income from the funds as grants to humanitarian, educational, health, and cultural entities throughout the First State.

For 25 years, the foundation has been connecting people who care with causes they care about, helping make Delaware a better place to live. For more information, visit
