Our Origin Story

The founders of the Women’s Foundation of California believed that, as women, we have the right and the power to change the world through our philanthropy. Indeed, when an individual is philanthropic, they acquires not just influence, but agency and joyful purpose.

As we approach our work through a critical and inclusive gender lens, we focus on the experiences, concerns, and leadership of cisgender and transgender people, non-binary and genderqueer people.
