The Chester County Fund for Women and Girls Unveils a New Strategic Plan, Website, and Logo
The Fund leads and unites the community to improve the lives of women and girls.
WEST CHESTER, PA (October 13, 2015) –For the first time in eight-teen years, the Chester County Fund for Women and Girls is unveiling a new strategy to increase awareness and the understanding of issues women, girls, and their families face in our county. In 2015 the Fund completed a comprehensive strategic plan process that incorporated the input of stakeholders within the community to develop a vision, mission, and strategic direction for the future. The result of the process is a plan that reflects the potential and commitment of the Fund to make our community better for women and girls. The strategic plan will guide the Fund’s efforts to lead and unite the community through philanthropy and advocacy to ensure that women and girls have resources and opportunities to thrive.
The Fund is presenting a new logo that reflects the bold and vibrant framework of the organization. This framework focuses on strategic goals, identified and shaped with the input of the community that will hold the Fund accountable for ensuring that women and girls have resources and opportunities to thrive. The strategic goals are to update and augment the Fund’s grantmaking and non-grantmaking approaches, activities and programming, position the Fund as a leading advocate for women and girls, lead as a responsive organization that is fully inclusive, and enhance the Fund’s position and impact in the community.
Today is the official re-launch of www.ccfwg.org, a website that mirrors the goals of the strategic plan. The Fund website provides information and resources on the issues women, girls, and their families face in Chester County as well as multiple ways that visitors can give back to help the Fund with is mission in the form of donations, planned giving, matching gifts, and volunteer opportunities. The new website brings together and supports individuals and organizations around a shared commitment to the well-being and self-determination of women and girls. We hope you will explore the new site and provide any feedback.
