Global Fund for Women believes that grassroots movements have the power to disrupt the status quo and radically alter the course of history for women and girls—and all historically marginalized people and communities globally. Anchored in feminist principles, Global Fund for Women leverages deeply rooted relationships and technical expertise to equip movements with flexible financing and resources to maximize their impact.
