Save the Date for Feminist Funded 2023: Rising

Rising Conference Poster Wall

Dear Colleagues,

The data is clear. Strong feminist funds that are networked to multi-stakeholder global alliances, and to each other, create the winning recipe to accelerate change. This approach allows us to address issues that are bigger than any single border with solutions that are more powerful than any single organization.

That’s why WFN is committed to creating spaces for global collaboration like our next biennial conference: Feminist Funded ‘23: Rising. Finally, we’ll be back in person, returning to the site of our very first conference in 1985: Washington, DC.

September 10 – 14, 2023.

Welcome & Legislative/Policy Pre-Conference
Sept. 10-11th
Feminist Philanthropy Legislative Day & Feminist Foreign Policy Convening
Sept. 12th
Feminist Funded Conference
Sept. 13-14th

This signature event will bring together thought leaders in philanthropy, advocacy, and culture, dedicated to creating a more just, equitable, and safer world for all of us. We are also adding an extra day to the conference to bring you, for the first time: Feminist Funded 23: Legislative Conference and Policy Summit. This Summit will include an opportunity for U.S. women’s funds to meet directly with their congressional representatives and for global guests to connect with government officials about the impact of policies across the globe.

Join us. Together, we rise.

Hold the date and look out for more details in the coming months. If you missed our 2021 virtual conference or simply need a little boost of inspiration as you settle back into work, catch up now.

The conference theme, Rising, intentionally explores how each of your local organizations, together, form a deep global network for progress, providing our greatest opportunities for lasting, substantial gains for equality and prosperity. In these turbulent times you have repeatedly demonstrated your strength by rising to challenge after challenge with resilience and collaboration. .

In solidarity,
