For the past 17 years, the Community Fund for Women & Girls has invested in improving and advancing women and girls in the Greater New Haven region in many ways including making grants. Program grants are made to advance women and girls as individuals. Strategic grants are made to address systemic causes of inequity. Women & Girls Fund leaders have concluded increased strategic grants will have greater and more lasting impact for women and girls. Therefore, in 2014, the Fund will restructure its grant process to appropriately plan for an increased investment. Planning will require the participation of the Fund’s partners, including nonprofit organizations, donors, experts and leading advocates for women and girls. If you are interested in participating, please contact Sharon Cappetta at firstname.lastname@example.org.

In June of 2012, the Fund for Women & Girls launched companion online education and advocacy sites. We Pledge for Women is a collective values statement that showcases the many elements involved in the advancement of women. Site visitors are asked to sign on to the collective pledge. I Pledge for Women is a collection of pledge statements that individuals have shared reflecting personal commitments to advance women and girls.
These sites are complimented by the Women’s Resource Guide section of the Fund’s website. While under development, the Resource Guide includes information on organizations working to advance women and girls, as well as links to information resources on topics of interest.

Greater New Haven is home to a thriving arts community that includes theatre, music, dance and the visual arts. It is invested in its museums, historic preservation and the celebration of its members’ ethnic and cultural diversity.
A strong community not only meets its members’ basic needs but also works to create long-term solutions to their problems. Provide people with affordable housing, enough to eat and access to affordable health care and you enable them to envision a better future for themselves.
Greater New Haven’s vibrancy is linked to its communities’ support of its neighborhoods, public gardens and sports, as well as its commitment to the protection of its people and pets.
A strong economy begins with a community that supports its people. When you support workforce training, financial literacy and public transportation, you enable individuals and families to work where they live, increasing their chances of economic success.
Educate a child and you change a community. For the child, a good education means better career opportunities and higher lifetime earnings. College graduates enjoy better health and are more inclined to volunteer and vote. For the community, supporting our youths’ educational goals results in a stronger society.
Stewardship of our natural resources is essential if we wish to guarantee that present and future generations enjoy clean water, good air quality and open spaces. When you support organizations that protect the environment you address immediate need today while ensuring a greener tomorrow.
A healthy community is a rich community. When we enjoy good health, when we engage in wellness activities – and when we support people living with disease or disabilities -- there are profound physical and psychological benefits. Simply put, we are all stronger and happier. To support the health and wellness initiatives in your community is to put good health within reach of all.
When families, schools and communities take the view that children and youth are valued and respected assets to society, they necessarily support environments that nurture youth development. Children raised to embrace positive social values, to seek self-understanding, and to value their self-worth grow to become community-minded young adults with a sense of belonging and a belief in their resiliency. See how you can help our community's children grow into tomorrow's leaders.
