Grants from the Fairy Godmother's Fund benefit women in a variety of ways including:

  • Dollars were were used to purchase an iPad for a woman with significant intellectual and developmental disabilities to use at work and for budgetary, banking and other daily tasks.
  • A mother was able to purchase a bunk bed for her children instead of them having to sleep on the floor after escaping a domestic abuse situation.
