Mission Statement

Chicago Foundation for Women supports the achievement of social justice through grantmaking and advocacy.

Description

One of the largest women's funds in the world, Chicago Foundation for Women believes that all women and girls should have the opportunity to achieve their potential and live in safe, just and healthy communities. For the last 22 years, the Foundation has influenced social justice through advocacy, leadership development, and public and grantee education. In addition, we have awarded more than 2,500 grants totaling $15 million to hundreds of organizations that make life better for women and girls in the Chicago metropolitan area. The Foundation's core values include gender-specific funding, diversity, accessibility and choice. Our work is rooted in three priciples of women's human rights: economic security, freedom from violence and access to health information and resources.
