About Global Fund for Women

About

Fighting for equality for over 25 years

Global Fund for Women is one of the world’s leading foundations for gender equality, standing up for the human rights of women and girls. We campaign for zero violence, economic and political empowerment, and sexual and reproductive health and rights. Our Vision is that every woman and girl is strong, safe, powerful, and heard. No exceptions.

We fund and partner with women-led groups who are courageously fighting for justice in their own communities. This rights-based approach gets to the root of gender inequality and is the most effective way to create permanent social change.

We’re a public foundation and rely on the generosity of our donors to support our critical work in the fight for gender equality. We use our powerful network to rally advocates, raise money, and get support to where it’s most urgently needed.

We’re an unstoppable global community of over 20,000 donors, 2,000 advisors, and 500,000 advocates. Since 1987, Global Fund for Women has invested in nearly 5,000 grass-roots organizations in 175 countries, helping to win rights for millions of women and girls.
