Each year, the Women's Endowment Fund invites community members to honor the important women in their lives through its annual "Who Is Your SHEro?" campaign.

During the months of March and April, community members are encouraged to make tribute or memorial gifts in honor of their SHEroes – the mothers, wives, sisters, friends and mentors who have made a significant impact on their life. In turn, those honored can receive a special SHEro card letting them know a gift was made in their name.

Donations are fully tax deductible and ultimately support the Women's Endowment Fund's grantmaking to programs that improve the health and wellness, safety, and economic empowerment of women and girls in Summit County.

Thank You For Honoring Your SHEroes

Celebrating Your SHEroes is Easy

  • Make a gift in honor of your SHEroes.
  • Each woman you honor can receive a personalized card telling her that she's your SHEro. This card will notify your SHEro that a gift has been made to the Women's Endowment Fund in her honor, but will not disclose the amount.
  • The Women's Endowment Fund will grow! Your gift will help the fund award grants to nonprofit organizations that empower, uplift and support women and girls throughout our community.

Meet Our 2024 Ambassadors

This year, we recruited a team of SHEro ambassadors who have committed to spread the word through their personal and professional networks. To read more about our ambassadors and the SHEroes who inspire them, visit our campaign page.
