Giving To Women’s Causes Increasing


A recent study by the Foundation Center, in cooperation with the Women’s Funding Network, has found that foundation giving to women’s and girl’s causes has outpaced general foundation giving. Most of this giving is done via so-called women’s funds, which are explained as “grant making entities that seek out and invest in women-led organizations and programs that are building solutions to core challenges in communities”. According to the study, between 1990 and 2006, foundation giving to women’s causes rose 223 percent (adjusted for inflation). In contrast, during the same time period, overall foundation giving increased 177 percent.

Charity Navigator rates many organizations whose primary focus is on women and girls. If you want to get in on the trend, and research some of these charities, you can find our ratings for them on our website by clicking here.

It has been shown that communities benefit overall when their women and girls are thriving.

Women's Funding Alliance, based out of Seattle, raises funds for organizations around the world that raise the status of women and girls.

Gaspar's Construction will be hosting a free tour of a Green remodel that will benefit and raise awareness for the Women's Funding Alliance. The tour is October 17th and 18th from 10am-5pm each day. Gaspar's will match up to $1500 that is raised on each day of the tour. I'll have more details about the tour at www.gaspars.com and you can learn more about the Women's Funding Alliance at www.wfalliance.org

This is very useful information. However, do you know if Charity Navigator also tracks where the funding comes from, and if so, publishes that along with their ratings?
