It will be up to women to fund our social and economic progress. Women’s Funds play a central role in allocating funds to the most effective and innovative change efforts. In advancing the status of women and girls, we must redefine old notions of who a philanthropist is. We must all become philanthropists with new, more democratic and collective approaches. We must drive the change through a new funding movement based on collaboration, connection, and shared values.
The Women’s Fund SouthCoast has the network and expertise to allocate funds to the most vital, worthy projects. We identify the right resource to address the most pressing issues, whether they be education, child care, living wage, health, safety and wellbeing, civic and political leadership.
We are a collective voice for positive change.
In the past 20 years, the Fund has become a leading resource on the status of women and girls, documenting the reality of their lives on the SouthCoast. Our knowledge, experience, and vision empower us to influence community decision-making and to partner with area nonprofits, businesses, and elected officials to address women’s needs and close the gender gap.
