Our Roadmap to a Feminist Future

This is Our Roadmap

To a Feminist Future

We're On
Our Way

Women of color and gender expansive folks know the way forward.

At Women’s Foundation California, our path to a feminist future is integrated and our approach is intersectional.

Rooted in our values, we’ve built a strategic roadmap for the next three years to build towards that future.

Where We’re Going

It Starts In

The racial, economic, and gender justice that we want for everyone starts in California.

We have the resources and networks to improve the health, safety and economic prosperity of California and beyond. 


How We Get There


Our Strategic Grantmaking

We’re moving $50M to movement organizations advancing racial, economic, and gender justice by the end of 2023.

How We Invest

Building Skills, Building Power
