Women’s Partnership Funds
» Women in Clark County have lower average earnings than men in the community.
» Half of female head-of-household families with children under 5 are in poverty.
» Half of all Clark County pregnancies are to unwed mothers.
» When women struggle with these issues, children, families and communities suffer.
Who We Are
An affiliate of the Springfield Foundation, the Women’s Partnership Funds were created to address ongoing barriers that women face as they try to achieve their full potential in the Springfield community. It is our desire to build a permanent source of funds for existing Clark County programs that address some of the biggest challenges women face today. These challenges include:
|» Domestic Violence
» Training and Education
» Employment with Living Wage
» Health Care
» Family Planning
To transform the lives of women and girls in the Clark County area by mobilizing the collective power and passion of women working together through philanthropy.
To see all Clark County area women and girls self-sufficient and achieving their full potential.
