Who we are:

The New York Women’s Foundation is a cross-cultural alliance of women promoting economic security for women and families in New York City. The Foundation uses a participatory grantmaking approach to identify and support the most effective community-based solutions. Our grantee partners are women led, community based organizations, and address a wide variety of issues including workforce development, violence prevention, and reproductive justice in order to address the complex challenges facing the women and families most in need in NYC. The Foundation also engages in partnerships and public education initiatives in order to advance its efforts and highlight the work of our grantee partners.

How we use Status of Women in the States:

Reports like the Status of Women in the States are effective tools to influence public dialogue and policy that support the significant work happening on the ground. The reports are another platform to support current best practices and identify gaps and shifting needs.
