The vision, mission and goals of the Fund for Women compel us to work tirelessly to promote and sustain the Fund to continue to provide grants to girls and women living in Chemung, Schuyler, Steuben and Yates counties in the Southern Tier of New York every year.


We live in a community of women empowered and equipped to realize their life goals.


Our mission is to help girls and women achieve economic self-sufficiency and realize life goals.


The goals of the Fund for Women are:

  1. Enable girls and women to thrive
    • Provide grants to individuals
    • Provide grants to non-profit organizations with whom we partner to make a direct and important difference
    • Provide grants to women in treatment for breast cancer who experience non-medical barriers to care
  2. Build the endowment
    • Increase the number of donors across Chemung, Schuyler, Steuben and Yates counties
    • Develop and implement a sustainable fundraising strategy
    • Re-engage Fund for Women Founders
    • Attract new individual and corporate donors at all levels


Our core values are respect, inclusiveness, community, transparency and sustainability.
