We are an independent advocate for women and girls. Since 1985, we have been promoting true gender equality through annual grants, targeted research, education, policy submissions, events and more.

We have a thirty year tradition of progressive philanthropy and are one of the oldest women’s funds in the world.

Everything we do is about creating an equal future for all. We advocate for violence prevention, fair wages for equal work, and the equal representation of women and men in the decision making processes that shape our lives.

We firmly believe in the power of the collective — by joining together today, we know that we can make a better tomorrow.
