The mission of the Kentucky Foundation for Women is to promote positive social change by supporting varied feminist expression in the arts. When women and girls advance, so does Kentucky.

KFW carries out this mission through:

Two Grant Programs: Each year the Foundation awards $200,000 to feminist artists and social change organizations in Kentucky through two grant programs: Artist Enrichment and Art Meets Activism.

Residencies and Retreats for women and girls: Hopscotch House Retreat and Residency Center is a KFW program that serves women and girls in Kentucky by providing a supportive setting for feminist artists and activists to create, connect, and convene.

The KFW Hot Flash: E-News for Everyone: Weekly and Special Edition emails include announcements, opportunities, and action steps.

Creating and sharing resources about feminism and social change: Check out the KFW Feminist Timeline. Have fun taking the Women’s History Quiz to test your knowledge. If you don’t know all the answers, don’t worry, see the Answers to the Women’s History Quiz, and learn more about our foremothers. If you visit Hopscotch House, be sure to spend time in the Library there, which offers a wide variety of websites, books, articles, and artwork on feminism and activism.

Although KFW focuses on Kentucky, you can participate in feminist art and social change wherever you live!
