GENDER, POWER, AND PHILANTHROPY: A FEMINIST PHILANTHROPY INFOGRAPHIC

What is Feminist Philanthropy?

Traditional philanthropy is typically white and male dominated, and that’s bad news for feminist activists who end up getting the short end of the stick. Only 1.6%—of all charity makes it to women and girls. 

Help us flip the script, and celebrate a different way of showing solidarity and support: feminist philanthropy. It’s about time, right? 

It’s not new for all of us at Global Fund for Women. We’ve been at it for over 30 years, funding human rights and gender justice for women, girls, and all marginalized people at the local level and trusting local partners to drive solutions that make sense in their own communities. 

As a feminist funder, we’re shifting power to historically marginalized communities including women, girls, and gender non-conforming people. We’re getting flexible funding and resources directly to feminist activists who know exactly how to use it. 

We know this approach supports bold grassroots gender justice movements creating meaningful change that will last beyond our lifetimes.
