The New Venture Fund (NVF) conducts public interest projects and provides professional insight and support to institutions and individuals seeking to foster change through strategic philanthropy. This grant to NVF, which serves as the fiscal sponsor for this project, is aligned with the overall Initiative strategy and will support the ongoing design, launch, and implementation of the Women's Funds Collaborative, a multidonor collaborative that aims to strengthen the infrastructure and visibility of women's funds. It has four goals: support the institutional health of individual women's funds; support cohorts of women's funds to be better positioned collectively to attract resources; support an evidence-based narrative to advocate for women's funds; and share lessons from feminist philanthropy.
