Fiscal Year 2014-15: Global Fund for Women Focuses on Financial Sustainability
This past year, we came together to create a strategic plan for 2015-2020.We reviewed the past ten years of financial performance and developed a new financial plan to support sustainability and growth.
In the year that ended on June 30, 2015, we:
- Added over $1M to our operating reserves which helps secure our financial future.
- Awarded nearly $7 million in direct grants to courageous women-led organizations.
- Devoted 80% of our resources to grantmaking and advocacy activities.
Our grantmaking activities include reviewing applications, vetting organizations, evaluating impact, and bringing our grantees together.
Our advocacy program continues to raise awareness, build partnerships, and influencing others to shift more money and support to women and girls.
We are a public foundation. A portion of our expenses relate to fundraising as we rely on our donors to support the critical work in the fight for gender equality.
