    The Women’s Fund of the Capital Region is dedicated to investing and working together to make a difference in the lives of women and girls. We believe that education and training lead to better jobs and careers, which are key to ensuring the economic security of women.

    The Women’s Fund is providing impactful scholarships, mentoring programs, and emergency funds through Hudson Valley Community College and Schenectady County Community College. Our focus on educational initiatives is making a difference.
