Why a Women and Girls’ Fund?
Women still experience barriers that prevent full participation
and fairness in society, which negatively impact their communities.
Poverty, a lack of education and job training that lead to gainful employment opportunities and teen pregnancy all prevent women and girls from attaining economic self-sufficiency in Wyoming. Among foundation grants over $10,000 only seven percent goes specifically to women and girls. We believe that if we do not invest in women and girls, their children and families, and eventually state and national economies will suffer.
Women's and girls' funds provide grants that benefit women
and girls as well as communities overall.
For the past two decades, women and girls' funds have improved access to education, jobs and asset growth, in turn reducing teen pregnancy, increasing the number of women and girls who complete their education, supporting positive early job experiences and strengthening sustainable economic self-sufficiency. When we increase our investments, these achievements will continue to grow.
We invite you to be a part of the movement to invest in the
power and potential of Wyoming's women and girls.
Money fuels change; you can help the Wyoming Women's Foundation use our experience and expertise to make the most impact for women and girls in our state. Giving is a powerful act of social change, regardless of the amount.
We will spend your money wisely.
The Wyoming Women's Foundation is an endowed, component fund of a statewide community foundation, building capacity for systemic change. As the only statewide foundation dedicated to funding for women and girls, your donation is leveraged through our endowment and focused on lasting change for women and girls because when women and girls prosper, communities thrive.
