Women’s Fund of Central Ohio

Category:

The Women’s Fund of Central Ohio provides grants—to individuals and programs—that promote positive social change and expand opportunities for women and girls. Recently, the organization determined it would benefit from a comprehensive development plan to support a sustainable future. Through interviews with community leaders and the women who benefit from the Women’s Fund, Benefactor Group evaluated the organization’s development programs, made recommendations to strengthen the capacity to secure generous philanthropic support, and created a five-year development plan to increase funding support, build the endowment, and expand the donor base. The plan provided a clear path for the Women’s Fund to increase its annual net development income at least threefold and its endowment assets fivefold over the period of the development plan, maintaining its role as a premiere resource for women and girls in Central Ohio.
