Study Paves Way For Fort Wayne Women's Fund

Aug 28, 2019

The Community Foundation of Greater Fort Wayne is teaming up with Purdue Fort Wayne's Community Research Institute on a project to establish a Women's Fund.

The last report on the status of women locally was released in 1974 to guide the development of what became the Fort Wayne Women's Bureau.

Earlier this month, WBOI's Julia Meek sat down with Alison Gerardot, the Foundation's Vice President of Philanthropic Services and Rachel Blackman, director of the Community Research Institute, to talk about the scope of the project, its time frame, and the impact it could make on the community.
