Financial Highlights & Stewardship of Resources

Is the Global Fund for Women financially healthy?

Our financial health remains strong despite a challenging global economic environment.

  • Our net assets are at the highest level ever — over $20 million.
  • We raised more than $17 million this fiscal year — surpassing the previous fiscal year by 14 percent. These contributions came from diverse sources, with 37 percent from individual donors, 30 percent from foundations, 29 percent from governmental institutions and 2 percent from corporations.
  • We continue to maintain our historically low administrative expense ratios (8 percent).

We are committed to stewarding funds and resources to support our priority activities and issues:

  • 75 cents of every dollar raised spent directly on programmatic activities.
  • In addition to grantmaking, our key program activities include connecting and convening grantees, supporting and building the capacity of our grantees, and evaluating the impact of our grants.
  • Our investment strategy is socially responsible and aligned with our values.

Is the Global Fund’s style of grantmaking expensive?

Our grantmaking process is both thorough and complex:

  • We receive over 3,000 applications annually in multiple languages.
  • All qualified applicants must complete a rigorous due diligence process.
  • We grant to over 600 organizations each year.
  • We monitor and evaluate the impact of our funding.

Each of these key activities requires time and resources.
