Why you are needed now, more than ever.

It's not 50/50

Women make up 50% of the population, but comprise the majority of the poor.

1 in 20

In 2020, 1 in 20 women globally lost their job. The pandemic has hit everyone hard, but it's hit women in developing countries the hardest.

Less than 2%

A recent report revealed only 1.9% of all charitable giving goes to organizations supporting women and girls.

From collecting firewood and fetching water, to accessing healthcare, women are forced to hope for the best, while being given the least.

YOU CAN HELP.

It’s time we reimagine who and how we lift people out of poverty.

It starts by giving women leaders who run transformative organizations in Africa the tools, funding and mentorship to end extreme poverty and help save our planet.

Meet our first Lead Partner, Catbird

The Catbird Giving Fund has committed $500,000 over the next ten years as our Lead Partner in the Women's Fund.

Their generous, multi-year commitment will support vital health care for pregnant moms and babies in Togo, West Africa.

Currently, in the region where Catbird is focused, only 9% of all residents have access to health care, making it one of the places with the highest maternal and child mortality rates in the world.  

Catbird's commitment is estimated to create good jobs for women, who will provide vital health care to an estimated 100,000 people over the next ten years.

When women lead, everyone wins.

Lifesaving work,
led by women

Our Women's Fund employs the same laser focus we've had for ten years. We care about maximizing donations to ensure you are supporting cost-effective solutions that save lives while creating jobs.

We’ve always supported women leaders, the only difference now is the local organizations you support through our Women’s Fund will be 100% led by women, with many comprised of female-led teams.

INNOVATION, IMPACT AND ENTREPRENEURSHIP.

Focus your generosity on sustainable solutions.

You can direct your giving to one cause you care about: providing clean water, tackling hunger, protecting the environment, or supporting maternal health care. Or, you can support the entire portfolio.

We will work closely with you to build mutually-beneficial opportunities to see your impact grow.

YOU ARE INVITED.

Let's mobilize, give and impact, together.

Imagine if hundreds of individuals, foundations and companies came together to uplift women.

Our goal is to mobilize a movement to channel $100 million dollars by 2030 to women-led nonprofits working to uplift women and children in developing countries.

With this level of support, we anticipate our collective impact will create over 80,000 new jobs for people currently living in poverty. These new jobs are estimated to provide lifesaving, essential services to 30 million people in Africa.
