Gruber_fellowshipposting.pdf. WHEAT Women's Fund | Women's Funding NetworkWomen's Funding Network. What We Do. Forty years ago, four visionary women established the Ms. Foundation for Women to elevate women's voices and create positive change. Today, we're a dynamic and powerful entity that is leading the charge on women's issues nationwide. This is how we do it. We start with the knowledge that our fight is not yet over. It's true that women have come a long way since the 1970s, but for every woman who has reached the "top" (and who still face discrimination, by the way), there are millions of women struggling to earn a living wage, gain access to basic health care, secure affordable child care and participate in the opportunities that should be available to every person in the U.S. At the Ms. We are committed. Our Mission Continue Advocacy & Policy There's a war on women, and we are fighting back.

"[S]mall, localized and isolated efforts that cannot be scaled up to mobilize a larger number of women and their communities against gender discrimination, are not sustainable: we cannot rest content with small islands of change in a sea of oppressive patriarchal cultures.

Women’s funds are international, regional and national grant makers that support groups working towards women’s empowerment. They invest in women and in women-led solutions and build the leadership of grassroots groups that address the issues of women and girls within their context. The first women’s funds were established in the 1970s by women who saw that little mainstream philanthropic funding was being specifically targeted at women and girls. To address these gaps, these women created vehicles to redress this funding imbalance and to provide a new “gender lens” in philanthropy. Thirty years later, not only has the number of women’s funds grown rapidly, but the total giving by women’s funds, particularly in the South, has increased at a faster rate than foundation giving on the whole. Most women’s funds function as both fundraisers and grantmakers, amassing and investing resources for the benefit of women and communities.

What we fund Additional information. Contact Us - MATCH International Women's Fund. Adeleye-Fayemi.pdf. From aid to investment: funding women's rights groups. From being pictured on the cover of Newsweek to becoming a focus of the World Bank’s 2012 Annual Development Report, women and girls are high on the global development agenda. Today, every major funding sector is paying attention, at least rhetorically, to the role of women and girls in development.

Why, then, is this enhanced interest not reflected in the among of money available for women’s rights organizations worldwide? For the past eight years, the international Association for Women’s Rights in Development (AWID), where I work as a manager, has been observing shifts in the funding landscape. Our most recent report, “Watering the Leaves, Starving the Roots,” notes a disturbing trend: As the private sector becomes more involved in funding women’s issues, donors are prioritizing support for individual women and girls - the “leaves” - rather than on sustained, collective action by women’s rights activists and organizations - the “roots.” Headlines don’t tell the story.
