Every one of us has the ability to create positive change in the lives of the women and girls who need it most. When we work together, we achieve better results. Here are some ways you can support the work of The New York Women’s Foundation. If there are other ways you’d like to volunteer, please email


Grants Advisory Committee (GAC)

GAC provides volunteers with the opportunity to participate in The Foundation’s unique grantmaking process. Serving as The Foundation’s “eyes and ears,” GAC members work in teams supported by Foundation staff, to review proposals from application organizations, conduct site visits, and make recommendations for funding. This approach, unique to The Foundation, allows us to leverage the talents of local women in finding and supporting effective community-driven programs.

The Corporate Leadership Committee (CLC)

The CLC is comprised of mid to senior level corporate women from diverse industries who work to increase corporate partnerships and support of The Foundation.  CLC members meet approximately once a month to create and implement fundraising strategies. It is an incredible leadership and networking opportunity that allows corporate women to participate in high impact philanthropy and demonstrate their commitment to improving the lives of women and girls in New York City.

The Emerging Leader’s Network is a group of women early in their professional and philanthropic careers who commit their resources and enthusiasm to supporting The Foundation’s mission. The ELN aims to educate, empower, and inspire members by encouraging them to learn more about, and take a leadership role in addressing, the unique challenges and philanthropic needs of women and families in New York City.
