Ducky Day in Tipton Park, and youth philanthropy
In 2007, a group of Tipton County women came together to discuss issues facing women and girls. Realizing that projects and organizations needed support to improve conditions and opportunities for women of all ages, abilities, needs, and backgrounds, the Women’s Fund of the Tipton County Foundation was established as a permanent endowment. The fund continues to grow, and provides a way for all community members to address these needs of women and girls. Grants are awarded to help nonprofit organizations committed to increasing options and opportunities for women and girls in Tipton County.
The Aim of the Women’s Fund
“Women and girls with roots in Tipton County unite their charitable giving through the Women’s Fund of the Tipton County Foundation. Our grantmaking creates a stronger, healthier, and more vibrant community where women are empowered to reach their full potential.”
The Women’s Fund would like to invite your local group or organization to apply for funding to support your efforts relating to women and girls.
The Women’s Fund is particularly interested in funding programming in the following areas:
Program ideas might include things like surrogate grandmother/granddaughter or an intergenerational book club using mixed media, and would focus on building communities of interest regardless of age.
Program ideas might include things like Internet Protection for Teens, “Sexting,” Differences between Reality, Reality Television, and Scripted Television, Media Images, Support for Teen Moms, and Anti-Bullying.
Women Supporting Women
Programs where women are helping empower other women.
Maintaining a Sense of Self
Program ideas might include Opportunities for Positive Social Interaction for Stay-at-Home-Moms, Continuing Education, Developing Communities of Interest, Transportation and Outreach, Arts, Literacy, Finance, and Self-Respect.
Any projects which contain these elements as major themes will be given preference during the funding process. Projects should demonstrate significant impact, collaboration, innovation, as well as outreach to all women of all ages, abilities, needs, and backgrounds.
Announcement of awards will be at the Women’s Fund Afternoon Tea
on Sunday, June 8, 2014. All those applying for funds are asked to be
