At BWF, we are who we serve. So we know firsthand that organizations supporting women, girls and gender-expansive people receive just 1.6% of all national charitable donations. Philanthropic redlining persists.  However, we believe that change begins with women, girls, and gender-expansive individuals in their own communities. They can and must be leaders within all movements if progressive change is to occur. That’s why we exist solely to support these leaders as they work toward systems change and solve problems on the front lines of their communities.
