A Bigger, Truer We

Gender is expansive and so is our community.

At Women’s Foundation California, our name reflects our history but not our present. Across all of our work, we strive towards greater gender-inclusiveness and continue to learn and evolve as an organization.

We Train

For more than 15 years we have trained a powerhouse network of advocates who are changing the policy landscape of California. Our Solís Policy Institute and Funders Policy Institute build the confidence, know-how, and network to change the game.

We Connect

As a publicly-funded foundation, we know that together we can do more. With our events, trainings, and convenings, we bring together organizers, policy movers, grantmakers, and power builders from across the state to spark new connections, strengthen networks, and build community.

Our Grant Partners

Supported by the generosity of our community, we moved nearly $10 million grantmaking dollars to our partners in 2020.

Across California, we prioritize investment in organizations and networks that build power in communities led by women of color and non-binary leaders. From the valleys of Visalia to the streets of San Francisco, our grantmaking strategy is guided by trust and flexibility.

Advance Racial, Economic, and Gender Justice

Together We Are Unstoppable.
