Join us for a global conference that brings together women's fund leaders, donors, experts, and activists from around the world!

The National Council for Research on Women and the Women's Funding Network are collaborating on an an exciting Annual Conference that will be held in Brooklyn, New York and will mobilize women leaders to work collaboratively for positive change at the local, national, and international levels. It will offer the latest strategic thinking on how to increase our impact.

The Conference Program will focus on how women's funds turn the conventional model of philanthropy upside down, radically changing the way individuals, corporations, foundations and governments invest in women and girls. It will also address how women's funds, and the network at large, is an effective vehicle, for shared leadership and collective action, allowing us to authentically and effectively extend our reach, increase our impact and build a movement for social change.
