The Feminist Health Fund supports women's wellbeing!
In Her Own Words—Board Secretary, Alex Klug
For forty years, The Feminist Health Fund (FHF) has quietly financed women’s medical needs, and in these past four decades we have witnessed incredible changes to both our healthcare system and women’s services. Recently, we have seen an increasing need for the type of funding we offer due in equal parts to changes in our political system, an increasing population, and a shift in gender identity and gender norms. 2020 alone has been a tumultuous year for all people but especially for BIPOC community members—Black, Indigenous, People of Color—low income, and gender neutral or gender transitioning.
The FHF has strategically planned to diversify the voices within our own leadership with more women of color, more gender neutral & transgender people, and both senior and youth on our board to provide the insight we desperately need to affect change in our community. We have also acquired our first office space, and we are increasing our online presence with a new multilingual website to broaden regional access to our services.
The FHF has consistently allotted funding directly to applicants experiencing medically related financial hardship, and we have added two new funding campaigns in the past eighteen months: The Domestic Violence Network (DMV), a discreet funding source for women experiencing unsafe domestic situations; and an avenue provide resources for reproductive healthcare materials. All our services are available to individuals who identify as women in Greene County, Ohio.
We are enthusiastic about our ability to continue this important work during these difficult times, and we are as always, grateful to the ongoing support we receive from our contributors.
