Become an Ambassador for Economic Independence

Why Invest in Women?

Increase

To Increase Economic Stability

Black women have experienced disproportionate job losses and larger increases in unemployment than other ethnic groups. Black women are a majority of the black workforce, head a majority of black families with children, and are more economically vulnerable.

Empower

It's Empowering

To date, only 7% of all philanthropic dollars are allocated to address needs specific to women and girls; that amount is barely enough to meaningfully address the deep and complex challenges they face.

Eradicate

To Decrease Poverty

Women-headed families with children under age 18 have considerably higher poverty rates than all women-led families overall, regionally and nationally.
