On behalf of women and girls everywhere, you took action to mobilize nearly $2.1 million in giving that will sustain 10 outstanding organizations accelerating progress toward equality, empowerment, and opportunity.

You believe that Equality Can’t Wait. We believe that too.

Together, as partners in the Empowerment & Opportunity Fund, we are turning this belief into action.

10 outstanding organizations driving toward gender equality

Because you took action, 10 organizations — many of which are featured in Melinda’s book, The Moment of Lift — are accelerating their efforts, so that women and girls are able to harness their power to make decisions, take opportunities, and define their world.

You are the Partner in Gates Philanthropy Partners. Thank you for giving with us.
