  • empowering innovation by funding our tailored approach to investing in the individuals solving some of the world’s most challenging issues.

How far can your donation go?

Vital Voices champions women leaders around the world. In 2018 alone, we partnered with 1,618 leaders from 103 countries, and our 18,000-person Global Leadership Network is comprised of women leaders from 182 countries and territories around the world.

Growth as Leaders

With an 8% acceptance rate, our competitive signature programs amplify each women leader’s daring vision for change, providing her with the capacity-building, leadership training, network expansion and skills she needs to scale her impact. A shocking 85% of participants in our signature programs reported maintaining or increasing their confidence about their ability to have a positive impact on their community.

Empowering Innovation

Our commitment to the women leaders we work with goes beyond just one program, one time, one year. Our team provides continuous tailored support to women leaders in our Global Leadership Network by forging strategic connections, awarding grants and providing further programmatic offerings. Since our founding in 1997, 10% of program participants have enrolled in two or more of our programs, and in 2018, we awarded over $3 million in grants.
