Founded in 1998, Washington Area Women's Foundation transforms the lives of women and girls, the Washington region and the world. We mobilize our community to ensure that economically vulnerable women and girls in the Washington region have the resources they need to thrive.
The Foundation connects the DC area with the global movement that recognizes that promoting women's and girl's prosperity is key to stronger, more resilient and healthier communities. We believe in the promise and value of every women and girl in the Washington area because we know that when they achieve their full potential, our entire region benefits.
At Washington Area Women's Foundation, we have deep insight into the needs of women and girls and the expertise to direct and leverage resources so they support the most effective organizations and solutions. Through grantmaking, research and education, advocacy, and catalyzing philanthropy, we are creating opportunities for women and girls to reach their full potential and for our community to prosper through their involvement.
