Our framework is rooted in gender, racial, and economic justice, based on trust, and guided by community. We practice participatory grantmaking—guidance for grantmaking comes directly from the communities to be supported and is informed by our grants advisory committee. We build long-term relationships with our grantee partners to foster organizational sustainability and empower lasting change. At its core, our trust-based philanthropy cedes decision-making power about grants to the very communities impacted by funding decisions.

Safety & Healing Justice
Health Equity & Reproductive Justice
Expanding Democracy & Leadership

Economic Justice

Economic justice depends on gender and racial justice. We invest in the economic sustainability of underinvested women—especially women of color and immigrant communities.

Safety & Healing Justice

All women, non-binary, and gender-expansive people should be safe from violence and abuse. We invest in safety, healing, and creating safe communities for survivors.

Health Equity & Reproductive Justice

Health and bodily autonomy are fundamental human rights and necessities for the well-being of women, non-binary, and gender-expansive people. We invest in upholding and defending health equity, reproductive justice, and abortion access.

Expanding Democracy & Leadership

Women’s participation and influence is key to a vibrant democratic process. We invest in strategies for leadership, with a focus on immigrant, LGBTQ+, and communities of color.


The programs we support are as diverse and varied as the communities they originate in. Our grantee partners are innovators, leaders, and changemakers—learn more about their stories.
