Programs and Services
Adella B. Woods Scholarship Fund awards scholarships to women of Erie County for higher education. Monthly events are focused on advocating for women's issues in the workplace and in public life.
Over the past fifteen years, we have awarded over $85,000 dollars in scholarships to outstanding adult women students pursuing degrees at local universities. Additionally, we have sponsored Tech Savvy, a one-day workshop for young girls and their parents. It introduces them to careers in various STEM fields. We have also partnered with local organizations such as Gannondale, The Erie Neighborhood Art House and the Girl Scouts. We provide funding and leadership for projects that support local girls.
We come from diverse fields that include working or retired educators, businesspeople, IT specialists, artists, and social workers.
Members are committed to their own life-long learning. To that end, we meet monthly to learn from experts about issues affecting our community and nation, especially those that most affect women and girls.
