The New York Women’s Foundation Announces $2.4M in Grants to Address Needs of Women and Families in NYC
The New York Women’s Foundation announced a total of $2.4 million in grants awarded to 37 organizations working to promote economic security and justice for women and families throughout New York City. Building on the foundation’s history of success, these investments show strategic growth and continue to strengthen their position as the premier women’s fund in the U.S.
The grants address a range of issues across the foundation’s core focus areas of economic security, anti-violence and safety, health, sexual rights, and reproductive justice. In addition to focus areas by issue, they also transverse strategies integral to long-lasting change, including individual transformation, community engagement, mobilization and systemic change.
Through key investment strategies, the foundation is working to strengthen efforts that support girls, young women and gender fluid youth of color to achieve their full potential to accelerate a shift towards gender and racial equity; deepen support of emerging community organizations, invest in programs and incentives to bring women’s leadership to the forefront of our political process; and focus on asset-building in underserved communities that promotes economic and social wellbeing that is driven by solutions sourced from within those neighborhoods.
