What We Fund

Our funding strengthens feminist movements at every level. We will support individual organizations building collective power in their communities; women’s and feminist funds that provide a critical lifeline for this work; and the coalitions and networks that bring all these different groups together to strategize and take bold action. 

We recognize and celebrate that we are one part of a growing field of funders who work in this space. Our goal is to complement and accelerate this vibrant expansion of our sector, exponentially increasing overall investment in women’s rights organizations and feminist movements working from the grassroots level to the regional and global stage.

In keeping with this vision, we plan to introduce a total of four grantmaking streams through 2024 that will support such organizations, both emerging and well-established, working all around the world.

Our first grantmaking stream, Catalyze, was launched in September 2020 with a focus on providing direct funding to women’s rights organizations. Over the next four years, three additional grantmaking streams will be launched:

Prepare and Respond

Together, these approaches will create a global wave of change across multiple issues that impact the lives of girls, women, and non-binary people; contribute to stronger feminist movements; and strengthen the global ecosystem of women’s funds and feminist funders, all at the same time.
