Hopewell Fund’s GALvanize USA is a nonpartisan civic engagement program founded in 2018 in light of the increasing polarization of the country. It seeks to tackle the social and cultural barriers that too often hold women back from using their full political power for progress. Using research, behavioral psychology, and neuroscience, GALvanize identifies, engages, and brings women together from across the political spectrum in supportive communities where they can build the political knowledge, confidence, and agency to vote their values. The organization’s theory of change is that unlocking the power of every woman to use her political agency will help to create an America that works for everyone. This grant provides flexible support for GALvanize USA.

for RAD innovation fund
This grant will support Resources for Abortion Delivery (RAD) to establish an “innovation fund” to surface replicable strategies for ensuring and expanding abortion access at a time when they are severely restricted for millions of women due to the recent overturn of Roe v. Wade. Ideally, this will lead to a reimagining of abortion care, one that reduces overmedicalization while ensuring the highest standards of safety, increases abortion-seekers’ autonomy and agency, compels the public health system to treat abortion as a fundamental health and social need, and greatly expands public and private coverage of abortion.
