Canadian Women's Foundation
The Canadian Women’s Foundation is a national leader in the movement for gender equality in Canada. Through funding, research, advocacy, and knowledge sharing, the Foundation works to achieve systemic change that includes all women. By supporting community programs, the Foundation empowers women and girls to move themselves out of violence, out of poverty, and into confidence and leadership.
Launched in 1991 to address a critical need for philanthropy focused on women, the Canadian Women’s Foundation is one of the largest women’s foundations in the world. With the support of donors, the Foundation has raised more than $100 million and funded over 1,950 programs across the country. These programs focus on addressing the root causes of the most critical issues, and helping women and girls who face the greatest barriers.
The Canadian Women’s Foundation aims to be inclusive of diverse people across gender and sexuality spectrums. We focus our efforts on supporting those who face the most barriers and have least access to relevant services. This includes people who identify as women, girls, trans, genderqueer, non-binary, and 2SLGBTQI+.

You don’t believe in taking a Band-Aid approach to solving problems and neither do we. That’s why the Canadian Women’s Foundation focuses on the most critical challenges facing women and girls, and invests in the most effective solutions for long-term change.
With your support, we approach holistically—from women and girls in communities across the country right up to the federal government level. It takes strong community organizations and dedicated service providers to deliver programs that change lives. Yet, these organizations often operate on shoestring budgets with few resources.
With your support, the Canadian Women’s Foundation provides organizations with one to five years of funding, which helps to retain staff, evaluate programs, and improve long-term outcomes.We also bring grantee organizations and sector experts together to network, discuss emerging issues, coordinate services, and work together toward long-term solutions.
JOIN THE TIRELESS. The road to gender equality has been long, but every step forward comes from the tireless efforts of supporters like you. Together, The Tireless will achieve gender equality. And we won’t rest until all of Canada is with us. Donate now at JoinTheTireless.ca.
