Creating the Future We Deserve It Takes All of Us

The mission of the Ms. Foundation for Women is to build women's collective power in the U.S. to advance equity and justice for all.

We envision a world where all of us can live full, secure, and healthy lives. But because different circumstances affect our life outcomes, we need equity. In a thriving democracy, everyone has these opportunities.

At our 50th anniversary milestone, we celebrate our impact and acknowledge the continued urgent need for our work. To create a future that works for everyone, we must mobilize the next generation of feminists.


EMPOWER grassroots organizations led by women & girls of color.

4,881 grant awards to grassroots leaders to date, with new grantee partners coming soon as we launch Ms. Midwest.

EXPAND the gender equity movement.

With the generous support of allies in this movement, spanning multiple generations and transformative legacy gifts, we are on track to reach our $100M goal by June 2024 when this campaign closes:

$83,134,816 raised with your support

With this, Ms. Foundation can continue to close the funding gap, supporting more grantee partners who serve their communities and protect rights every day.

SCALE effective targeted philanthropy

Building upon our groundbreaking research, we recently published Living With Pocket Change: What It Means to Do More With Less, a study that examines the impact and real life experiences of chronic philanthropic underinvestment and disinvestment in the leadership of women and nonbinary people of color. This report includes actionable recommendations for effective philanthropy, moving beyond trust and towards care.
