Believing all women are worthy, W.O.W. strives to combine our gifts and talents to benefit the women and children of Blackford County.
Women of Worth (W.O.W.) is a philanthropic arm of the Foundation formed in 2009 and centered on cultivating and nurturing the spirit of giving among women in this community. W.O.W. members’ annual donations provide grants to local organizations that are working to benefit the lives of local women and children through education and encouragement.
We can do collectively what we cannot do individually.
