Fund for Women and Children

Date Established: March 12, 2019

Congratulations to our 2022 grant recipients!

The Rowley Family Foundation’s Fund for Women and Children is a unique philanthropic effort designed to identify and address pressing issues impacting some of the most vulnerable members of our community. Through targeted and specific funding, the goal of this initiative is for nonprofits in the region to elevate their programming to empower the women and children of Orange, Sullivan and Ulster Counties.

A global pandemic now ranks high among adverse childhood experiences. We are deeply sensitive to the challenges COVID-19 has created for local non-profit organizations and acknowledge that they have been on the front lines providing critical services to the community.
While we remain optimistic about brighter days ahead, we also realistically believe that these challenges will persist for quite some time. The Rowley Family Foundation is funding opportunities for 2022 in preparation for what’s anticipated to be another challenging year ahead.

Launched in 2019 with an inaugural round of grants to fifteen organizations totaling $519,791, this strategy is designed to be as efficient and effective as possible in targeting resources and solutions that are making a difference in helping women and children thrive and reach their potential by offering help, hope and lasting change that improves lives and strengthens communities.
