Women to Women

Founded in 2007, Women to Women supports, protects, and empowers the more than 40,000 women right here in our own community who struggle daily to put food on the table, to keep themselves and their children safe and healthy, and to lift themselves out of poverty and towards futures of opportunity.

Helping women and girls build brighter futures.

Women to Women is a permanent grantmaking endowment at the Community Foundation of Greater Greensboro dedicated to empowering women and children to create healthy families and vibrant communities in Guilford County. Each year this initiative awards high impact grants to programs, organizations, and projects that create a positive and measurable impact on women, their families, and their futures.

Why is this initiative important to our community?

When you invest in women, you invest in stronger, more stable families and communities. You develop more capable workers—people who produce more, save more, and spend more, both now and for years to come. You help raise a generation of healthier kids with brighter futures, and you lower the cost of everything from public safety to social services to health care.

Economic insecurity is central to why many women struggle to provide for themselves and their families. However, economic security is caused by factors that range from lack of education to domestic violence. Women to Women identifies points of intervention that can immediately improve women’s economic security. Then, we offer high-impact grants to support programs that help women become economically secure and or economically self-sufficient.
