Women's Funding Alliance (WFA) and our community of supporters and partners know that to accelerate social change for women and girls we need to be part of the larger global community working towards positive solutions. The Women's Funding Network is a group of 135 organizations from around the world that invest in positive social change for women and girls. All of the member organizations share a commitment and passion for women-led solutions for the most pressing problems in our communities.
WFA joined this network in 2001 to collaborate with other organizations around the country and world that share similar values and beliefs as funders of women and girls. Many of these organizations focus on the very issues that are a priority for Women's Funding Alliance: economic opportunity and poverty; civic engagement and leadership development, and health and safety. Our movement shares the vision of what a more equitable, peaceful and sustainable world looks like. We share the determination to increase funding for women and girls at all levels with the goal of bringing social change and improving communities all over the world. We are united in our power to leverage resources and collaborative efforts toward these.
Here is a quick snapshot of the collective power of the Women's Funding Network:
- 135 women's funds around the world covering six continents
- $50 million per year in global investments in women and girls
- $450 million in collective working assets
- Tens of thousands of donors, change-makers and thought leaders-all with a shared passion for bringing women's ideas to the forefront of global problem-solving
