Our Work

Our work is data-driven and community-led.

While many women’s funds focus on grantmaking, the Women’s Fund of Greater Fort Wayne will be doing work a little differently. Through research, education and advocacy – we aim to make systemic change in our community.

Research – Meaningful, community-led research to find data-driven solutions.

Education – Center and collaborate with local experts to inform and shape the community.

Advocacy – Supporting and designing policies that support systemic success.
