The Women's and Girls' Fund
WE will transform the lives of women and girls in Kern County by mobilizing the power and passion of women working together.
Women Educate to create awareness of women's and girls' needs unmet by current strategies.
Women Endow a permanent fund whose annual yield supports programs benefitting women and girls throughout Kern County.
Women Empower one another and our girls to become philanthropists and advocates of positive social change.
The Women's and Girls' Fund is primarily a volunteer effort supported by Kern Community Foundation and guided by the leadership of the Vision Committee and Community Advisors. The assets of the Fund are professionally managed and invested by Kern Community Foundation, which also provides oversight of Fund grant decisions.
