Grants to this Grantee
for general operating support
The Global Fund for Women has been a catalyst in the global women’s rights movement since 1987. By mobilizing nearly $85 million from more than 20,000 individuals and institutions, it has been able to provide grants to 4,200 groups in 171 countries. In 2010 alone, the Global Fund’s efforts reached 125,000 women and girls and benefited thousands more. In recognition of the appointment of the Global Fund for Women’s new CEO, Dr. Musimbi Kanyoro, this unrestricted funding would allow the organization to continue to advance women’s rights by making grants that support and strengthen women’s groups around the world.
