WOMEN'S FOUNDATION OF MINNESOTA | A VITAL FORCE FOR GENDER EQUALITY

The Women's Foundation of Minnesota invests in social change to achieve equality for all women and girls in Minnesota.

Now in our 30th anniversary year, we were launched in 1983 as the very first statewide women’s foundation in the country.

We fund and build the capacity of innovative social-change programs across Minnesota through grantmaking, research, public policy and building women’s philanthropy.

Each year, we make nearly $2 million in grants to nonprofits across the state to fund innovative projects that address the root causes of gender inequality. Our grantmaking funds: Social Change Fund, girlsBEST Fund, and MN Girls Are Not For Sale Fund.

In partnership with the University of Minnesota Humphrey School’s Center on Women & Public Policy, we conduct and share annual research on the status of women and girls in the state to inform our grantmaking, educate opinion and policy makers, advocate public policy, and raise public awareness and engagement around women’s economics, safety, health and leadership..

We also measure and evaluate the social change we affect with specific indicators for tracking progress, and we promote women’s philanthropy and provide our donors with important training and tools to help shape a just society.

Together, we’re moving equality to the finish line!
