The Gender Fund

Host Organization: CO-IMPACT PHILANTHROPIC FUNDS INCmdi-circle-small New York, NY, US mdi-circle-small


The Gender Fund is Co-Impact’s second fund, aiming to raise and grant US billion and provide predominantly women-led locally-rooted organizations, in Africa, Asia and Latin America, with large-scale, long-term, and flexible funding. This method of funding is integral to creating more just and inclusive systems and shifting harmful gender norms that prevent progress. The Fund’s design and development was informed through consultation with our program partners, the gender community, as well as our funders, advisors, and other experts.

The objectives of the Fund are:

-To transform systems to be more just and inclusive so that at least 100 million people will have better healthcare, quality education, and the opportunity to thrive – regardless of their gender, class, ethnicity, or race.
-To advance women’s power, agency, and leadership, so there are more women leading at all levels -from the household and community to institutions and government – influencing decisions that affect their communities and society.
-To shift harmful gender norms that prevent progress.
