California women are bold, resourceful and smart and, if given an opportunity, will find solutions to the challenges facing their families and communities. All too often, the most complex and pervasive of these obstacles are rooted in economic insecurity.
That’s why the Women’s Foundation of California trains and invests in women to become policy advocates and philanthropic leaders who strengthen the economic wellbeing of California’s women and their families. We want to put an end to women living month-to-month and paycheck-to-paycheck, never knowing whether one financial setback—a trip to the emergency room, an unexpected car repair—will push them to the edge of poverty and homelessness.
For over 36 years we have been a leader and trusted partner, activating our extensive grassroots and statewide network to shape the policies, programs and attitudes that elevate women and their families.
