Community Foundation Women's Fund Endowment

Why I am a Champion for this Cause

Thank you for visiting my CHAMPION web site!

I believe in the ability of the Women’s Fund endowment to help women achieve economic and family stability.  Grants made by the Women’s Fund turn our goals of educational, economic and social equality into realities, one woman at a time.  Essential to obtaining these results is our track record of working with volunteers and professionals across Tompkins County–and there are many–who share our commitment.  For example, recent grants have made it possible for

  • Women to attend Basic Math Workshops to achieve GED or employment with a grant to TOMPKINS LEARNING PARTNERS for transportation and workbooks.
  • Several low income immigrant women were assisted in obtaining U.S. citizenships with a grant to IMMIGRANT SERVICES PROGRAM of CATHOLIC CHARITIES OF TOMPKINS COUNTY, for payment of required fees and services.
  • The purchase of wigs for several low to moderate income women with cancer who were undergoing chemotherapy with a grant to the CANCER RESOURCE CENTER OF THE FINGER LAKES.

The need will always be there, and so will the Women’s Fund Endowment.  It will be here for our grandchildren and for their grandchildren’s grandchildren.  Thank you for considering a gift to the Women’s Fund.  All gifts made before August 5th will be matched 1:1, and that means more grants to assist more women in Tompkins County.
