Mission

For over thirty years, CFW has been the only organization in the region to take a comprehensive approach to understanding and addressing the challenges and needs women face through every stage of their lives with a focus on: economic security, freedom from violence and access to health care services and information. CFW works with a community of socially-minded investors who share our passion for improving the lives of women, girls, trans, and gender non-binary people, and ensures that every dollar they give achieves maximum impact. We hold ourselves and our grantees to a high standard, conducting rigorous evaluation, careful monitoring, and demanding results. and, CFW invests in the future of organizations, through leadership development and building sustainable nonprofit infrastructure. As a result, two-thirds of nonprofits for which CFW was the first institutional funder are still thriving ten years after receiving their first CFW grant.
