As a dedicated grant provider for women and girls in Door County, we hold the belief that equipping women with the necessary resources for success not only benefits them individually but also contributes to the prosperity of their families and the community at large. Investing in women and girls is the smartest choice for funding long-term solutions to issues that concern us all.

CHILD CARE ASSISTANCE
We are pleased to continue our partnership with the United Way of Door County on child care initiatives. The Women’s Fund of Door County co-funded a community child care coordinator, certified 60 students in Red Cross Babysitter training, supported Northern Door Children's Center, assisted in-home child care providers, and continued helping parents with the burden of child care expenses by partnering with local businesses to help offset the employee cost.
Looking ahead, we remain committed to positively impacting affordable, accessible child care options throughout the county, with a specific focus on in-home child care providers and partnerships with the business community to increase child care slots.
