Culture Change Fund - Women's Foundation California
What We Do

The Culture Change Fund is a funder collaborative focused on using culture to advance and transform gender justice by changing how the public thinks about wide-ranging issues, including economic security, income inequality, violence against women, sexual assault, maternal health, abortion, contraception, and broader reproductive justice and gender justice issues, among others.

Our Theory
of Change

Using culture change strategies, we’re accelerating a new way of thinking that centers gender, racial, and economic justice at the heart of the solution to any systemic problem.


Our first research project – Story at Scale – is a data-driven narrative research project designed for practical use by advocates, artists, and campaigners in all of their communications and organizing efforts.


A learning space where funders, activists, artists, and researchers working at the intersection of gender justice and social change work to share information and contribute to a living library of ongoing resources.


To give organizations and campaigns the opportunity to explore and build on culture change strategies, we provide direct grants.


Sundance supports an abundance of beautiful communities, conversations, and storytelling, reminding us that our stories have the power to shape our future.

This year, Women’s Foundation California was proud to support the Latinx House and the inaugural Indigenous House to celebrate and support filmmakers, artists, and creators building innovative narrative and cultural strategies.

All Bodies

Each drawing in All Bodies Deserve: Creating the Future of Us centers joy and diverse communities and is inspired by the ideas of abundance – that we should all have what we need to thrive; that people can be different and still equally valued; that we need to care for ourselves, our communities, and the world; and that we can raise curious, happy, healthy identities and families.

We chatted with all of the artists who contributed to the coloring book. Read our interviews with:
