As Austin’s wealth continues to increase exponentially, the opportunity gap continues to widen, leaving many Central Texas women behind and disproportionally impacting women of color. The Women’s Fund at Austin Community Foundation works to address this issue by improving the economic security of women in Central Texas. Members of the Women’s Fund believe that investing in a woman has a proven ripple effect, benefiting not just her family but her greater community. Guided by this vision, the Women’s Fund aims to close the opportunity gap for women and children. A giving network driven by data and community voice, the Women’s Fund makes nonprofit grants in the following areas: housing, child care, education and women’s health. Since its founding, the Women’s Fund has granted nearly $2 million to more than 60 local nonprofits.
