Global Fund for Women

global fund for womenThe Global Fund for Women was founded in Palo Alto California by 4 bold women. The four were convinced that women’s human rights and dignity were essential to the advancement of global agendas for social, economic, and political change. Frustrated by traditional philanthropy’s lack of interest in funding women’s groups and human rights, they forged a new path, founding an organization that would fund women-led organizations directly – unheard of in the early 80’s.
