Texas Women’s Foundation is advancing positive social change and advances economic security and leadership opportunities for women and girls across Texas. Guided by research that continues to show that women are the face of poverty, over the last year Texas Women’s Foundation has deployed funds to strategic initiatives, programs, granting and advocacy eff orts that are making change for women statewide. Together with our philanthropic partners – Giving Circles, Donor-Advised Fund holders, and Young Women’s Initiative – the collective impact has funded 197 organizations and distributed $4.9M in grants this fiscal year. In addition, $2.2M was invested in programs that which equip girls to become strong women, and preparing women to lead in their lives, their workplaces and their communities, which in turn makes Texas a better place for all.
