When action meets compassion, lives change.

The Fond du Lac Area Women’s Fund offers community volunteer engagement through service in a variety of ways. Previous experience is not required, but a passion for our mission and foundational focus areas is necessary. Foundational focus areas are: economic self-sufficiency; education; leadership development; and safety, dignity, and freedom from violence.

Our committees are 100% volunteer-based and focus on a variety of projects throughout the year – from education initiatives to fundraisers and beyond. Most committees meet once a month.
