Women's Foundation California

Feminists for Racial, Economic, and Gender Justice

Everything we do at Women’s Foundation California is a collaborative, interdependent effort.

We invite each and every member of our community to make a gift that emboldens our shared future, a gift that builds power, shifts culture, and strengthens community in pursuit of gender justice.

OUR NEW MERCH!

We collaborated with local Oakland artist Corinne (Critty Smitty) to create our limited edition Reproductive Justice Collection. This unique collection aims to reflect this moment in our movement and serves as a reminder of our interconnectedness as we work toward gender justice together.

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.

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.
