2022 Grantees

The Ojai Women’s Fund is pleased to announce $96,500 in grants to eight organizations in 2022, all possible because of the collective effort and dedication of this year’s 401 OWF members. These grants are awarded across the five program areas: Arts, Education, Environment, Health, and Social Services.

"There’s something about this organization and its underlying values of equity and fairness that really speak to me. I see it in memberships, in the way also that we do the grants – we really want to make sure that everyone has a chance in an equal manner to participate."
