1000 Women Strong

We have always supported our favorite charity. Usually that revolves around our faith and our church. We have one child who works for the Greater Cincinnati Foundation where they procure funds for many programs that help the Greater Cincinnati Community.

This seems like a formidable task in today's economy but the project is off the ground and rolling. Just a few dollars here and there will build the support and then those really benevolent people's donation will make the project fly.

Women, single mothers, the impoverished need help in every community. That is very true in greater Cincinnati near the Appalachian region where unemployment is among the highest in the country.


"1000 Women. One Strong Voice.

We believe when you provide opportunities to women, the entire community benefits. 1000 Women Strong is a movement initiated by The Women’s Fund to establish a community of professional women dedicated to supporting and creating opportunities for the women and girls in Greater Cincinnati through grantmaking, research, and advocacy. Join. Transform."
