More than a fund, the RRRCF donor collaborative brings funders, donors and local leaders together to achieve long term change.

WFN has created a multi-million-dollar Response, Recovery, and Resilience Collaborative Fund (RRRCF) that will allow institutional funders and donors to join forces for a multi-phase COVID-19 effort that has immediate and long-term impact. We invite donors and funders to join us in this effort by helping resource the initial $5 million so that WFN can begin deploying grants to members. The next round of funding will begin in early 2021.

About one third of US women’s funds and foundations are in danger of not surviving the year. Their loss could set economic mobility measures for women and families back decades.

The RRRCF will organize and deploy resources to stabilize financially threatened women’s funds, foundations, and funding network members. Priorities include response, recovery, and resilience.

Women’s Funds and Foundations are rapidly adapting and recasting their work for the greatest impact amid the pandemic. Because of their deep, cross-sector relationships and the trust of front-line service providers, they are well positioned to champion and channel resources to the areas of greatest need within their communities.

However, because of the insecurity created by COVID-19, approximately one third of US women’s funds and foundations are in danger of not surviving the year. Their loss could set economic mobility measures for women and families back decades.

We invite donors and funders to join us in this effort by helping resource the initial $5 million so that WFN can immediately begin deploying grants to members.
