This year, reaching $100,000 in donations will unlock a matching grant of a further $100,000.
Our intention is to do more with YOUR capital. Your donations to WoWE will be invested to deliver three layers of impact:
1. Each dollar is invested using a gender lens to intentionally generate market-rate returns
2. We work to multiply each dollar by crowding in other investors
3. Income generated from our investments will be granted into a strategy focused on supporting nonprofit organizations that drive impact for women and girls at scale
Why donate to WoWE? WoWE is focused on achieving gender equality by investing at the intersection of gender and today’s most pressing social and environmental issues. Women and girls do not lack the willpower necessary to create change, they lack the financial power to support their efforts.
Let’s make history together: WoWE is building towards a $5 billion endowment - the largest endowment ever focused on women and girls with a portfolio that is 100% dedicated to investing with a gender lens, where the returns are deployed as grant capital to nonprofit organizations creating systems-wide change for women and girls and the businesses and communities they empower.
Why your donation matters more than ever: The events of 2020 have placed a spotlight on the critical role women are playing as world leaders, business leaders, front-line workers, caretakers and more. Women are demonstrating exemplary strength and leadership within their communities and on the global stage. And yet, these events are having a disproportionately negative impact on women and girls.
We hope you will join us in the creation of a world in which all women and girls have equal agency and opportunity.
