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 allows institutional funders and donors to join forces for a multi-phase COVID-19 effort that has immediate and long-term impact.
About one third of US women’s funds and foundations are in danger. Their loss could set economic mobility measures for women and families back decades.
The RRRCF has organized and deployed resources to stabilize financially threatened women’s funds, foundations, and funding network members. Priorities included response, recovery, and resilience.
Women’s Funds and Foundations rapidly adapted and recast 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 were 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 still in danger. Their loss could set economic mobility measures for women and families back decades.
