A Closer Look at NY Fund for Women and Girls, Co-Founded by NoVo and New York Women’s Foundation
The NYC Fund for Girls and Women of Color brings together 16 funders. This collaboration isn’t brand new, but it’s the first fund of its kind in the nation and is worth watching closely, especially for how it makes grants.
The effort was co-founded by the NoVo Foundation and the New York Women’s Foundation, and is managed and housed at the latter. Grantmaking started in 2015 and this fund has now distributed at least $2.4 million in grants.
So what kinds of things does the NYC Fund for Girls and Women of Color support, and how does it operate?
