Virginia Gildersleeve International Fund (VGIF)
VGIF is an international women’s fund based in New York City. We invest in grassroots initiatives driven by women and girls in developing economies that sustainably advance their lives. Our grants provide opportunities to women's groups who have incredible potential, enormous courage, and few resources. Through flexible funding, we invest in their journey towards sustainability, while leveraging our networks to connect them to new partners as they reach towards bigger goals and greater impact on the lives of women and girls in their own communities. We are a lean team with an entrepreneurial spirit, collaborative office environment, and shared commitment to gender equity and justice.
Through its 2019-2022 Strategic Plan, VGIF has re-envisioned its grantmaking program, adopting a 3-stage (6 year) grantmaking model, and a focus on women's Economic Development and Empowerment. For the next 6 years, we will fund in the countries of Uganda, Kenya, Tanzania, Malawi, and India.
