Calling for a Cultural Transformation
Women and girls are distinctly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. We call for a short- and long-term transformation that centers women and girls in responsive strategies across the state and nation.
WFMN and #SHARETHEMICMN are launching a three-month collaboration with the Young Women’s Initiative to amplify the work, lives, and stories of the brilliant young Black, Indigenous, and young women of color who are leading in Minnesota today.
The Status research is a call for individuals and institutions to dismantle racial and gender inequities, increase investments in community solutions to end racial and gender injustice in our state.
Through a transformative model, the Women’s Foundation amplifies the leadership of young women ages 16-24 through direct investments in their ideas for maximum impact and momentum.
WFMN has awarded nearly $1 million to address the needs of women and girls experiencing gender-based violence, older women, short-term financial support for everyday needs, and transformational adaptation.
Founded in 1983, the Women’s Foundation of Minnesota is the first statewide women’s foundation in the country and holds a unique niche among Minnesota community foundations.
As a statewide community foundation, we invest, leverage, learn, influence, and scale to ensure community-based, community-led solutions to achieve gender and racial equity in Minnesota.
Ensuring a Minnesota where doors to opportunity are abundant and open to all girls and women in every community, and pathways to prosperity assured.
Ensuring a Minnesota where all girls and women are free from all forms of violence and can experience their homes, schools, and communities as safe places.
Ensuring a Minnesota where barriers are eliminated and all girls and women are respected and thrive.
Take a closer look at our impact areas and the funds and research that support them.
