About Us

A better world for women and girls is a better world for all.

A Powerful Network. A Movement for Change.

With more than 100 women’s funds and foundations engaged, Women’s Funding Network is the largest philanthropic network in the world devoted to women and girls.


Our mission is to bring together the financial power and influence of funders of gender equity in order to address and solve critical and complex social issues ranging from poverty to global security.


We strive to build a world where every woman and girl has the resources to achieve her full potential.


Our guiding values are equality, partnership, transparency, diversity, and inclusion



Thirty-three years ago, the women’s funding movement was a gathering of about 20 leaders who were convinced that philanthropy and social change needed to more fully recognize and include women’s voices. Learn more about our unique history and the efforts of women across centuries to spark greater investment in issues affecting women and girls.

Today, Women’s Funding Network is a growing community of more than 100 women’s funds and foundations spanning 14 countries. Our latest annual report and impact reports share stories, data, and more about how our Network is making a difference locally, regionally, and globally.

Serving this growing community is the task of a diverse team, including our talented staff and our Board of Directors comprised of member representatives, visionary supporters, and thought leaders from around the world.
