We are Southern Indiana’s philanthropic leader for creating a community where women thrive.
The Women’s Foundation of Southern Indiana engages women to raise awareness and resources to advance the quality of life for women.
Guided by an Advisory Board comprised of community representatives who reflect the diversity of our Southern Indiana communities, more than 100 women are now involved in moving Impact 100 Southern Indiana forward.
Impact 100 is dedicated to supporting organizations that work to improve conditions and opportunities for women in Southern Indiana via grants and volunteer initiatives. Focus areas of the fund will be defined through periodic needs assessments as identified by the Impact 100 Advisory Board and other committed volunteers. Focal issues today include family, community, health, youth, civic, culture, and education.
