The New York
Women’s Foundation is a voice for women and a force for
change. We are a cross-cultural alliance of women
catalyzing partnerships and leveraging human and
financial capital to achieve sustained economic security
and justice for women and girls. With fierce
determination, we mobilize hearts, minds and resources
to create an equitable and just future for women,
families and communities in New York City.
Who We Are:
Women Helping Women
At The New York
we work together to transform the conditions of
poverty and provide for economic
security, advocate for anti-violence and safety issues,
as well as health, sexual rights and reproductive
justice all helping to build a city where women,
families and communities thrive through shared power and
sustained justice and security.
Our work is
rooted in a tradition of educating and engaging
women of all means about the power of
our collective action as activist philanthropists.
We know that we can have a greater impact when we work
together, leveraging our financial and intellectual
resources for individuals and families to empower
themselves to affect long-term systemic change. It is
this singular commitment of women
helping women that sets The New York Women’s Foundation
apart from more traditional philanthropic organizations
locally and nationally.
Foundation, you will find women and men from all walks
of life. Our board of directors, staff and committed
volunteers are a diverse and remarkable team working

economic and social backgrounds who bring with them a
wealth of perspective and skills. Our supporters are
generous with their time, resources and ideas, actively
