Albany, N.Y. – Armed with the knowledge that the number of female heads of households with children under age 18 living below the poverty rate in the Capital Region has increased steadily in the past decade and aware that just seven percent of all philanthropic dollars raised in the nation are earmarked for programs for women and girls, the Community Foundation for the Capital Region, United Way of Northeastern New York and United Way of Schenectady County have formed a unique collaboration to create the Women’s Fund of the Capital Region. The goal of the fund is to promote women’s economic self-sufficiency and create opportunities for girls.
