At Global Fund for Women, we believe that grassroots movements have the power to disrupt the status quo and radically alter the course of history for women and girls—and all historically marginalized people and communities globally.
Anchored in feminist principles, we leverage deeply rooted relationships and technical expertise to equip movements with flexible financing and resources to maximize their impact. We educate and engage sector leaders including donors, policymakers, and the media to create favorable conditions for movements to thrive. And, we document and share learnings to strengthen activist efforts globally. By providing more to movements, we are shifting power towards women, girls, and all marginalized people worldwide.
We fund bold, ambitious, and expansive gender justice movements to create meaningful change that will last beyond our lifetimes. We offer general support funding that allows organizations and movements to choose how to best allocate and spend their grants.
Major initiatives and partnerships are also a critical part of our work to secure bigger wins, resources, and visibility for gender equality around the world. We partner with governments, NGOs, women’s funds, and corporations who share our vision of safety, voice, strength, and power for every woman and girl.
