Ohio Business and Professional Women's Retirement Foundation

Founded June 18, 1966

Our organization was originally established to support the public spaces at two retirement homes supported by Ohio Business and Professional Women’s Clubs, Inc. One facility was in Toledo and the other was in Cincinnati. Many things have changed in the last 54 years and so have we.  The two facilities have been sold but our purpose continues to be providing support to retirement housing non-profit facilities through grants and gifts. 


Donations to Non-Profit / Low Income

Subsidized Senior Housing Facilities


Ohio Business & Professional Women’s Retirement Foundation will continue to award one $500 grant per region to support a non-profit, low income / subsidized senior housing facility.


This grant is for a facility that provides documentation that the entity is operating under a 501c3 and they are a government facility and/or non-profit low income/subsidized housing for seniors, this is not necessarily a nursing home.


Information will be sent to each local and region president. Each local in a region may submit a request; one local from each region will be chosen to receive the grant. Application for a grant is accepted anytime until the deadline, April 20, 2022.   

Please find the attached forms to be completed and submitted by the due date.

$1,000.00 Nursing Scholarship 


The Ohio Business & Professional Women’s Retirement Foundation will grant a $1,000.00 scholarship to a woman pursuing a nursing degree in any accredited school, or nursing program.  A scholarship recipient will be selected by a committee after the March 31, 2022 deadline to submit applications. The recipient and all other applicants will be notified with a letter.  The Nursing Scholarship Grant winner will be announced at the BPW OHIO annual conference.


The purpose of our scholarship is to provide financial support to those interested in a career in nursing. Our policies governing the awarding of scholarships apply equally for all women. All information provided is kept confidential within the bounds of the review process.
