Grants / What We Do
Catalyzing community for lasting change.
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.
The Women’s Fund invests in innovative programs and policy advocacy that promote women’s economic opportunity using a two-generation (2Gen) approach and create pathways to success for entire families.
The current system for addressing poverty is fragmented. To support nonprofits already doing good work, our two-generation collaboratives—like Collaboration Institute—give organizations the time, space, and resources to move from good to great and deepen their impact for women and families.
It’s time to invest in policy changes that will have a lasting effect for the next generation.
