Women’s Foundation of  the South

Host Organization: Women's Funding Network mdi-circle-small New Orleans, LA, US mdi-circle-small


Women’s Foundation of the South (WFS) is a new philanthropic entity that centers and invests in the collective power, health, well-being, economic security, and leadership of womxn and girls of color in the American South.

WFS was created to shift the focus in philanthropy to focus specifically on womxn and girls of color, valuing them as inherent leaders and problem solvers who deserve to be trusted and well-resourced to ensure that they can determine their own destinies and that they and their families thrive. WFS intends to disrupt legacy philanthropy in the South by addressing racial and gender equity from the start. It is led by womxn of color and explicitly serves womxn and girls of color, including trans womxn and gender nonconforming people.
