New York Women's Foundation

At The New York Women’s Foundation®, we work together to transform the conditions of poverty and provide for economic security, advocate for anti-violence and safety issues, as well as health, sexual rights and reproductive justice all helping to build a city where women, families and communities thrive through shared power and sustained justice and security.

Our work is rooted in a tradition of educating and engaging women of all means about the power of our collective action as activist philanthropists. We know that we can have a greater impact when we work together, leveraging our financial and intellectual resources for individuals and families to empower themselves to affect long-term systemic change. It is this singular commitment of women helping women that sets The New York Women’s Foundation apart from more traditional philanthropic organizations locally and nationally.

At The Foundation, you will find women and men from all walks of life. Our board of directors, staff and committed volunteers are a diverse and remarkable team working toward common goals. The Foundation’s leadership includes women of different ages, ethnic origins, economic and social backgrounds who bring with them a wealth of perspective and skills. Our supporters are generous with their time, resources and ideas, actively working to improve the lives of women, girls, their families and communities in New York City.
