Our Annual Meeting

At the annual meeting on November 4, donors to the Women’s Fund of Vanderburgh County celebrated the announcement of two 2020 Impact Grant recipients, each received a $25,000 grant. This year’s recipients are:

House of Bread and Peace
for the addition of a new staff member.
United Caring Services for the renovation of the day shelter’s restroom and shower facilities.

The recipients of the four $10,000 grants finalist are:

  • EVSC Foundation for the Hangers program;
  • Holly’s House for the “Think First & Stay Safe” program;
  • Vanderburgh County Prosecutor’s Office to create a Crime Victim Emergency Assistance Fund; and
  • 4C of Southern Indiana for the Strengthening Families program.

We have now invested over $1 million in Vanderburgh County since 2007.

“Due to the challenges of COVID19 and its impact on the nonprofit and social service sector, we felt it important to structure our grant cycle around the emerging needs of the community, and most importantly, to retain our level of giving,” stated Candice Perry, Co-Chair of the Women’s Fund. She added, “We had a record-breaking number of organizations apply for funding this year which speaks of the great need for support in our community. We congratulate and applaud the efforts of the Finalist and Impact Grant recipients and have deep gratitude for the many organizations going above and beyond mission for our community every single day!”
