Ms. Foundation for Women

Mission of the organisation

The Ms. Foundation for Women's mission is to build women's collective power in the U.S. to advance equity and justice for all. We seek to achieve our mission by investing in and strengthening the capacity of women-led movements, particularly by women and girls-of-color, to advance meaningful social, cultural and economic change in the lives of all women and girls. We do this by focusing our grantmaking on women's safety, health, and economic justice (SHE). We provide flexible, general operating support to grantee partners to ignite change, amplify the least heard voices, and create collaborations across issues that address the interconnected nature of women's and girl's lives.Since 1973, the Ms. Foundation has invested more than $70 million into building the power of women in social justice fields, serving as a conduit to the philanthropic sector as an intermediary funder investing in women and girls. Our vision is to create a just and safe world where power and possibility are not limited by gender, race, class, sexual orientation, gender identity, disability or age. We believe that equity and inclusion are the cornerstones of a true democracy in which the worth and dignity of every person is valued.
