The Fund for Women of the Southern Tier, Inc., is an all-volunteer non-profit organization, and the only dedicated funding source for girls and women living in Chemung, Schuyler, Steuben and Yates counties in New York State.
Fueled by its supporters, FFW channels the power of community philanthropy to break down the barriers that persistently hold women back. Our hope is that every grant has the power to help transform a life by giving every girl and woman the confidence of knowing that other women in their community believe in them and are here to help.
