Foster Local Philanthropy! Join our Fiscal Sponsorship Program today and help sustain women’s rights groups by supporting an international women’s fund!
The Fiscal Sponsorship Program allows US donors to support regional philanthropic capacity in other countries, enabling local women’s funds to strengthen and nurture community-based efforts to advance women’s rights.
Through this program, you may recommend that your gift be awarded to one of the participating women’s funds listed below. US regulations require that the Global Fund for Women maintain discretion and control over any funds received; however, you can trust that your recommendation will be honored.
Our Women’s Fund Partners:
- The International Network of Women's Funds (INWF) is a membership association linking Women’s Funds to promote philanthropy with a feminist perspective.

- Invest in Muslim Women (IMW) a non profit organization, is focused on the economic empowerment of women, justice and peace. IMW addresses the fact that one eighth of the world is comprised of Muslim women and girls. Yet strategic philanthropy has largely ignored the opportunity to make education, employment and human rights accessible to this cohort. Muslim women and girls tell us repeatedly that they want to “learn and earn.” Invest in Muslim Women will enable them to achieve their goals by identifying and incubating tipping point projects. These projects can then be game changing for women and girls, and their entire societies. The first strategic focus will be South Asia starting with Afghanistan, Pakistan and India.
