Jeanne Porter Scholarship Fund

The Jeanne Porter Scholarship Fund was established in 2014 to increase educational opportunities for women in Dayton and Miami Valley. Monies for the fund are accrued through solicited donations, both personal and corporate, large and small fundraising events. 

The Jeanne Porter Scholarship Fund assists women who have launched their own business or are leaders within their organization and in need of education and resources. By giving them the resources they need to improve their education and skills, they can positively grow their business and leadership skills. The scholarship awards are to help offset any costs associated with their efforts to gain professional development, such as the WiBN Entrepreneur Group, Winstitute Leadership Workshops, Bridge 2 Success mentoring program and National Conference for Women. 

You could be instrumental in making the Jeanne Porter Scholarship Fund a great success by supporting women with empowerment through education. We accept direct donations to the scholarship fund. To donate to the Jeanne Porter Scholarship Fund, contact Melissa Cutcher at (937) 610-2273 or
