Equality Fund: Funding Female Futures


This is a historic moment in the global fight for equality. Women’s organizations and movements in Canada and around the world are on the frontlines of change—holding the line, demanding equality and driving transformation. The opportunity and the needs have never been greater. It’s time we boldly invest in their brave work to build a more equal world together.

The Equality Fund is a groundbreaking collaboration designed to deliver new momentum for women’s movements. The Equality Fund will drive the cultural, economic and political changes required to make global gender equality a reality. The time is now for Canada to demonstrate leadership to the world.

Welcome to the Equality Fund.

The Government of Canada has awarded the Equality Fund with an historic $300 million contribution to build a new global funding mechanism and leverage more resources for gender equality around the world. These funds will be invested and paired with an ambitious program to leverage philanthropic and bilateral donor support to create a long-term and self-sustaining source of funding for women’s rights organizations and movements in developing countries.

The Equality Fund’s primary focus will be to support women’s rights organizations and feminist movements in Canada and around the world. We will provide financial resources and strengthen organizations working at the grassroots and on the global stage. We will ground our strategies in the priorities identified by organizations and movements leading change in their communities.


Our investment strategy will leverage social finance as a tool to scale and transform systems for gender equality. We will apply a holistic approach to gender-lens investing grounded in best practices, innovative and traditional investment models, and a deep understanding of the many forces that perpetuate inequality across the globe. The Equality Fund will also support capacity building among investees by providing access to best-in-class resources, training, and guidance.


Our ambitious philanthropic strategy will assemble and sustain the world’s largest fund for women and girls. To achieve this goal, we will engage organizations, foundations and philanthropists at every level in Canada (and beyond) to design and build a new shared vision for global gender equality. This is an opportunity for Canadian philanthropy to build a gender equality legacy for Canada and the world.
