Living with Pocket Change: What It Means to Do More With Less

Organizations led by women and nonbinary leaders of color stand at the forefront of the most urgent struggles of our times, resolute in their commitment to constructing a just society where all can thrive. Supporting, investing in, and demonstrating genuine care for these leaders is not a mere choice; it is an imperative.

Building from Ms. Foundation for Women’s groundbreaking report, Pocket Change: How Women and Girls of Color Do More With Less, this latest research, Living With Pocket Change: What It Means To Do More With Less, examines the impact and real-life experiences of chronic philanthropic underinvestment and disinvestment in the leadership of women and nonbinary people of color, as well as underfunding of the organizations they lead, and highlights their needs, experiences, and the profound toll it takes.
