Our Mission and Vision

Washington Area Women’s Foundation’s mission is to invest in the power of women and girls of color across the Washington metropolitan region.

Our vision, is to ignite change in our community to advance gender, racial, and economic justice.

Our Work

Women and girls of color make change happen. While too often unsung, the work of women and girls of color have advanced human rights and gender, racial, and economic justice in our communities for decades. Our theory of change is that by increasing resources to, and recognizing the leadership of, women and girls of color, they will ignite needed change.

To advance our mission and theory of change, we are:

  • Grant makers - We make grants to organizations that are actively pursuing gender, racial, and economic justice, and we award women and girls of color directly.
  • Advocates - We center the voices and lived experiences of women and girls of color to influence policymakers and the local philanthropic sector to advance systems and institutional change with a gender, racial, and economic justice lens.

When you support The Women’s Foundation, you help create and sustain a community of everyday philanthropists who are making the Washington region thrive.
