Investing in innovative solutions to accelerate economic opportunity.
Since our founding in 1996, The Women’s Fund of Greater Birmingham has invested over $5 million in initiatives, research, and policy to strengthen our community by building equitable opportunities for women.
Driven by research, we identify and fund innovative solutions to address critical needs and remove barriers to create deep, long-lasting change for our region and state.
As Alabama’s first and only philanthropic foundation solely addressing the unique needs of women and girls, we leverage the resources of generous individuals, nonprofits, corporate partners, and community leaders to build a world where all women thrive.
By accelerating opportunities for all women, we also strengthen entire families and communities today and for generations to come.
The Women’s Fund of Greater Birmingham accelerates economic opportunity for women and their families through philanthropy, research, and advocacy.
We envision a society where power and possibility are not limited by gender.
Our grants support high-impact interventions proven to accelerate women’s economic opportunity and disrupt the cycle of generational poverty. We leverage community investments to support organizations that prioritize programs and public policy advocacy to remove barriers for women and their families through education, job training, child care support, housing, and more.
What gets measured gets changed. Our rigorous research guides all areas of our work and serves as a resource for statewide nonprofits, policy makers, and leaders making their case to secure needed funding and to implement innovative solutions to elevate women.
It is not enough for us to invest solely in programmatic solutions to accelerate economic opportunity for women. Without meaningful change in systems, women and their families will never have a complete pathway to success. This is why we advocate for nonpartisan policies that break down barriers.
