Why Donate

Invest in women. Improve the world.

When women succeed, everyone benefits. There is greater economic opportunity, greater attention paid to human rights and greater political participation at all levels.

From the World Bank and the United Nations, to the World Economic Forum and Goldman Sachs, recent studies show how investments in women are directly correlated to a country’s greater prosperity, poverty alleviation and reduction in corruption.

Explore our resources of landmark research and case studies that quantify the value of investing in women.

Visit our Vital Stories interactive and listen to the women themselves, read their stories and learn about how they accelerate change in their communities.
