$75,000 Matching Gift Campaign
Significant growth of the Women’s Fund endowment is crucial to make lasting impacts in Black Hawk County. Our goal is to grow the fund to $1 million to provide a $40,000 grant opportunity. To accomplish this, we have secured $75,000 in matching funds from generous donors who care about the women in our community. All gifts to the Women’s Fund will be matched dollar for dollar until funds are gone.
Your gift to the Women’s Fund Matching Gift Campaign will more than double grant dollars available to award to nonprofits providing critical programs to women and girls in Black Hawk County.
When barriers are removed and opportunities opened to them, women and girls thrive and our community wins.
House of Hope - Dominique's Story
Dominique found courage to escape an emotionally and mentally abusive relationship, finding herself without a home for her and her children in the process. Then she found House of Hope, a Women’s Fund grantee. At House of Hope, Dominique found a home and support that helped her become self-sufficient. Today, her children are thriving and so is she, providing for her family with a great job and a grateful heart.

“It brings joy to my heart to wake my kids from their own beds and tell them I have to go to work. I’m my own person and I made it better for me and my kids. I feel like I’m a success story.”
