The Women’s Philanthropy Institute Announces Inaugural Give to Women and Girls Day
The Women’s Philanthropy Institute (WPI) is launching Give to Women and Girls Day, a national awareness campaign to increase funding for women’s and girls’ organizations that will culminate on October 11, 2022, the International Day of the Girl. Give to Women and Girls Day will be a groundbreaking collaborative effort bringing together hundreds of women’s and girls’ nonprofit organizations and leading partners including Giving Tuesday, the Ms. Foundation, Philanos, Philanthropy Together, Schusterman Family Philanthropies, United Nations Foundation, Vital Voices, and Women Moving Millions alongside WPI to raise awareness and galvanize philanthropic support for women and girls.
Since 2019, WPI has measured giving to women’s and girls’ organizations through its Women & Girls Index (WGI). While nearly 50,000 organizations are dedicated to women and girls across the United States, the WGI consistently shows that less than 2% of all philanthropic support goes to these organizations. As WPI looks toward releasing its fourth annual WGI research findings on October 11, the inaugural Give to Women and Girls Day is an ideal opportunity to discuss how nonprofit organizations can incorporate WPI research into their fundraising efforts to help increase giving to women and girls beyond 2% of overall charitable giving.
Give to Women and Girls Day will equip a national network of organization leaders, communities and individuals with the resources necessary to engage across digital and social platforms to advance gender equity by increasing giving to women and girls. To learn more about the new initiative and how to participate, donors and fundraisers will be able to visit the new Give to Woman and Girls Day website, which will go live on Monday, October 3. On October 11, WPI is hosting a launch event to celebrate the inaugural Give to Women and Girls Day:
