Community Impact 

WIN Cleveland Business Major Scholarship Fund

In order to further align with our mission to enable continuous professional growth through sharing ideas, resources and providing business support as well as opportunities for women to learn and thrive, personally and professionally, the WIN Cleveland Business Major Scholarship has been established.

This annual need based scholarship will be awarded to a Junior or Senior year female student demonstrating financial need attending Ursuline College pursuing a Bachelor of Arts degree in Business Management, which includes Accounting, Marketing, Human Resource Management and Sports Management. Proceeds from our Annual Event will benefit the WIN Cleveland Business Major Scholarship.

We are proud to partner with Ursuline College, the only college in Ohio that focuses on the education of women. 90% of their undergraduate students are strong, empowered women who are interested in changing the world – some locally and others globally. Ursuline students are artists, activists, mentors, difference-makers, athletes and scientists. Students are encouraged to participate in service, promote social justice, contemplate their individual spirituality and pursue lifelong learning. 

Ursuline has been providing a holistic education which transform students for service, leadership and professional excellence for over 146 years. Approximately 30% of Ursuline undergraduates are students of color, another 10% come from other states and countries, and all major world religions are represented.

Proceeds from our in person events went towards our scholarship fund. During this time, due to COVID-19, all our current virtual events are FREE and open to all. We appreciate your continued generosity. 

All donations benefit the scholarship fund. Large or small every little bit helps. Thank you!

2019 in-kind Donation Recipient: Edna House

More than teaching their residents to abide by the 12 steps of recovery, Edna House imparts practical life lessons, job skills, and helps women build responsibility and self-respect that stay with them long after they leave.

What makes their program vastly different from traditional sober homes or institutional recovery centers comes down to simplicity. They provide residents a safe, focused environment, in which women eat, sleep, and breathe their own recovery. Edna House imparts personal responsibility through residents' ownership of the house and commitment to a structured daily life. And most importantly, they provide access to the recovery community that is the essential link towards making real, lasting change in a woman's life.
