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.
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.
Read our announcement with Catbird's Founder, Rony Vardi, and Becky Straw, our Co-Founder, in Forbes.
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.

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.
The Adventure Project is building community through entrepreneurship, sponsoring jobs in developing countries to improve child survival, reduce conflict, and move people out of poverty for good.
