Empowering Women in Philanthropy

When it comes to charitable giving, women are shortchanged. Only a tiny sliver of the philanthropic pie goes to programs aimed at women. Even more startling is that this discriminatory underfunding is virtually unacknowledged.

Although groups may claim they target more dollars to women and girls than to men and boys, overall allocations for specific gender-based programs shows a clear and harmful bias particularly among the larger programs.
