Glowing Brighter Together

Effective January 1, 2020, The Women’s Fund of the Capital Region is a program of Capital District Women's Employment & Resource Center (WERC). By partnering, the two organizations are able to maximize their impact and better serve women in our community. Like a constellation, we can collectively glow the brightest when we’re working together.

The Women's Fund of The Capital Region

The vision of The Women’s Fund of the Capital Region (The Women's Fund) is a community where all women are empowered through education to be self-sufficient and fulfill their potential. The Women’s Fund provides resources and support to financially-insecure and nontraditional female students - women who are older than traditional students and/or may have had an interruption in their schooling. Since 2006, they've raised and awarded grants, scholarships and emergency funds.

As a program of WERC, The Women's Fund activities and events will continue. The women served by each organization will benefit from additional support — WERC women will be able to apply for scholarships and Women’s Fund scholarship recipients will be able to access WERC job-seeking resources.
