Mission

Washington Area Women's Foundation is a results-oriented, creative catalyst for social change. We believe in the promise and value of every women and girl in the Washington area. We know that we we achieve our full potential, our entire region benefits. We envision the Washington metro area as a model community where every women and girl is on the path to prosperity. That is why we are using our deep insight into the needs of women and girls to collect, direct, and leverage resources to three core areas: financial education and wealth creation, jobs with benefits, career pathways and family sustaining wages; and high-quality early care and education. By supporting the most effective organizations and solutions, we can build economic security for all women and girls. We are working to educate and activate our community around the idea that promoting women's and girls' prosperity is the key to a stronger, more resilient, and healthier region. The Women's Foundation is the only donor supported public foundation dedicated to helping women and girls in the Washington region.
