Funding for Inclusion: Women and Girls in the Equation

MamaCash and Grantcraft have published a new guide for grantmakers to strengthen the role of European foundations in supporting women and girls.

The guide is “…filled with examples of what foundation professionals in thirty-one European foundations (and their advisors) are doing to integrate a gender perspective in their work and/or to focus some of their investments on women and girls”, writes Nicky McIntyre, Executive Director of Mama Cash. (Read highlights from the guide in Nicky’s blog post here.)

The guide explores how foundations can further deepen their commitment to empowering women and girls and provides practical strategies for integration of a gender lens in their work. The guide will be an important tool for foundations that are addressing or want to address the structures that result in exclusion and marginalisation and want to support inclusion with women and girls in the equation.
