As winter approaches, we have a grantmaking round up for you—as fall was an extraordinary season for The New York Women’s Foundation.
On October 15, we announced the first recipients of The Fund to Support the Me Too Movement and Allies grants, celebrated the first anniversary of the Me Too Movement going viral and some of its most prominent advocates, and recognized women leaders changing the world through their work and their lives at our 2018 Radical Generosity gala.

When we first announced the creation of The Me Too and Allies Fund and our partnership with Tarana Burke, founder and leader of the ‘me too.’ Movement at our Celebrating Women® Breakfast in May, our aim was to ensure that the momentum spurred by a hashtag would be sustained. We could not have predicted the events to come, as countless stories of sexual harassment and violence would come to light and force a reckoning.
