Our Mission: We provide funding and support
to financially-insecure and nontraditional female students
in the Greater Capital Region.


Since 2007, the Women's Fund of the Capital Region
has raised and awarded over

$459,000 in grants, scholarships and emergency funds


Listen to some of our scholarship recipients describe
how the Women's Fund has helped them.

Please join us in extending a helping hand and
making a difference between shattered dreams and success.


"When we depart this life, we are not going to be remembered by what we did for ourselves. We are going to be remembered by how we invested in this life to make the world a better place.

It takes courage to believe in a student you’ve never met, and that is exactly what scholarship donors do. They give people a chance. On behalf of myself and every student you have ever touched with your generosity, thank you for giving us a chance and helping to make our dreams take flight. "
-- a Schenectady County Community College Scholarship Recipient
