Overview: The purpose of this program is to provide support to nonprofit organizations led by women and girls of color (WGOC) to leverage their voices, power, and expertise to transform systems to live full and healthy lives. Awards will focus on building power and leadership of WGOC, including Indigenous, Black, Latinx, Middle Eastern, and Asian/Pacific Islander women, girls, and non-binary folks, both transgender and cisgender, with an unapologetic commitment to a racial and gender equity/justice lens.

The program seeks to use an intersectional framework to wield the full strength of WGOC’s knowledge, experience, and networks and lead to transformational change. Its goals are to

  • Strengthen the organizational and financial sustainability of an ecosystem of WGOC-led organizations
  • Increase connectivity between WGOC-led organizations
  • Position WGOC leaders as key experts and decision-makers in shaping policy and culture change

Awards will be made across the spectrum of movement building and organizing and supporting communities through the provision of general operating support.
