Meet Our Supporters

The Global Fund for Women's model of social change philanthropy challenges and overturns traditional notions of philanthropy. Instead of relying on a single funding source or the contributions of one individual, the Global Fund for Women brings together over 20,000 people and institutions in a network that pools resources and shares a passion for advancing women's rights. We believe that philanthropy is a shared responsibility and an opportunity for each of us to give and to receive as we seek to realize our vision of a better world.

Our status as an organization that fundraises its entire budget every year keeps us grounded in the same challenges our own grantee partners face in funding their work. We confront similar obstacles to mobilizing and securing resources to fuel our work and theirs.

Our supporters make it possible for us to continue to advance women’s human rights around the world. We thank them for their vital role as advocates and donors.

If you are interested in learning more about making an individual contribution, please contact Camille Matson at (415) 248-4800, or send her an email.

“The Global Fund for Women gets it all right. Through their powerful network of smart, committed and driven women, they channel funding to women on the ground who really understand the critical needs of local women and how best to use the money to meet those needs — whether for fresh water, improved educational opportunities, economic independence or freedom from violence.”
