Reports show that in 2019 there were nearly 13 million women-owned businesses in the United States, generating over $1.9 trillion in revenues and employing nearly 9.4 million people. With women professionals largely growing our local workforce, Waterford Bank felt the need to have a supportive network open to enabling their cause. As a result, we formed the Women of Waterford Foundation or Wow Foundation in early 2014 with the mission of “empowering women through education, community service, and professional enrichment.”
Through the Foundation we work with a talented local network of women professionals, in and out of the Bank, who bring their diverse skills and knowledge to the various projects we undertake. From our educational seminars to our community based philanthropic efforts, Wow has made serious strides in empowering women and enjoyed wide spread recognition throughout Northwest Ohio.
