The Women Behind Four of OWF’s 2022 Grantees – the New, Young Leaders in Our Valley
By Jennifer Jones

One of the primary reasons members join the Ojai Women’s Fund is to award grants to nonprofit organizations serving the needs of the Ojai Valley. What better way to motivate you than reporting on some of our 2022 grant awardees? The other grantees will be covered in future newsletters.

That’s where our story starts, but it’s not the whole story. There is another reason why our members can feel good about the grants we award. The women who lead these programs are creating a better future for all of us. They are leaders in their own right. These women have passion, and dedication, and are building their careers, not just working a job.
