Women’s Impact Investing Giving Circle

Support Social Ventures Led By, Benefiting WomenWomen's Impact Investing Giving Circle logo

Did you know that since 2011, the amount of venture capital dollars granted to teams of only women has ranged from 1.8% to 2.7% and it currently sits at 2.0%? And, Black female startup founders received just 0.34% of the total venture capital spent in the U.S. in 2021?

You can change that.

As a member of Women’s Impact Investing Giving Circle, your philanthropy will directly expand funding opportunities for women entrepreneurs.

Together, members will determine how to deploy their pooled resources to support social ventures led by and benefiting women while receiving a hands-on education from WFCO partner, Impact Finance Center.

The Foundation teams with professionals in the impact investing space to create a learning program and environment that teaches through doing.
