From national organizations working on broad policy change to local grassroots groups delivering vital services to under-served communities, our grantees are working every day on behalf of women and girls. They work on a broad range of issues, including economic justice, ending gender-based violence and preventing child sexual abuse, and protecting women’s access to health care and reproductive rights. Meet our grantees and see what we’re helping them achieve.
Funding Change for the Future
We believe that women are the engine for change in their communities. By funding game changing organizations that are successfully addressing pivotal issues of reproductive health; affordable child care with living wage jobs; and fighting gender-based violence – we are having real impact on the lives of women, children, families and paving the road toward a nation of justice for all.
Who We Support
As a national grantmaker, we support organizations at all levels, from grassroots to state and national organizations. We believe that women most directly impacted by an issue are the real experts and we select groups that are of the community they work in.
We choose our grantees carefully, informed by decades of work in the field. Our goals is to connect with emerging and established groups poised to act when and where change is needed.
