In 2019 the Jeffrey P. Ossen Family Foundation partnered with the Windham Women & Girls Fund to establish a three-year challenge, during which period all gifts to the fund will be matched dollar-for-dollar up to $60,000 each year.
These gifts will then be funneled directly back into the community in the form of grants to area non-profits, whose work is critical for the well-being of women, girls and their families in the Windham area.
We are continuing to build the Fund, and now in year two of the Ossen Challenge we hope to raise another $60,000 to be matched dollar for dollar by the Ossen Foundation. These matching dollars will go out as grants to our nonprofits later this year. The needs of our vulnerable women and girls are already on the rise due to the pandemic and the resulting economic effects, so our grants will be especially significant this year.
As of 8/27/2020 we have raised 94% of our goal, for a total of $56,595.
