Women’s Funding Alliance envisions a world where all women and girls have the opportunity to live, lead and thrive.
Advance leadership and economic opportunity for women and girls in Washington State. We accomplish this by making the case, driving solutions and mobilizing people to make change.
Women’s Voice Leadership: When women and girls speak, we listen and shape our work as a result. We champion women’s leadership at every turn.
Relentless Optimism: We are motivated by the belief that tomorrow can be better than today. We find opportunities in every challenge. We work with purpose and joy.
Learning and Results: We take risks, make mistakes and learn together. We drive results and an exceptional return on investment.
Bold Solutions: Pernicious inequality calls for big thinking and transformational leadership. We embrace complexity. We are bold and solutions-oriented.
Generous Collaboration: We believe collaboration with donors, community organizations and decision makers leads to lasting change. We are open and generous with our partners.
Commitment to Equity, Diversity and Inclusion: To make our vision more of a reality, we:
1. see the world through a gender lens and then overlay other equity lenses – race, class, sexual orientation, identity, ability, age, geography – to have a full understanding of women and girls’ lived experience, disparities and opportunities;
2. are grounded in an understanding of the root causes and systemic nature of inequality and inequity within our society and believe both society and systems must change for women and girls’ lives to change;
3. engage people with diverse voices, life experience and expertise to identify bold solutions and create paths forward; and,
4. challenge our staff, board and partners to approach working together with curiosity and cultural competence.
