Women Donors Network’s (WDN) mission is to advance a just, equitable, and sustainable world by leveraging the wealth, power, and community of progressive women donors.
United by a shared vision of justice and equity for all, our members boldly invest their wealth, time, and talents together. We listen deeply to leaders and movements fighting injustice, move funds quickly, and foster creative strategies that advance systemic change.
Our approach to change is multi-faceted: It is bold, unapologetic, joyful, and collaborative. Our programs provide a range of opportunities for progressive women philanthropists to learn new skills, connect with other WDN members, and leverage funding for greater collective impact.
Our work is intersectional and focused on three areas of strategic impact: participation and representation for all, opportunity and equality for all, and a safe and sustainable future for all.
Participation & Representation for All
All people should have equal access to the power of the vote. The political leaders who represent us at all levels should reflect the people they serve and the full talent and lived experiences that America has to offer. We need to ensure the full participation of all citizens in electing our leaders and holding them accountable.
Opportunity & Equality for All
Everyone should be able to live a secure, peaceful, and productive life. We must work to build a more balanced society and economy that removes obstacles for people struggling to make ends meet, and ensure that all people enjoy basic human rights and freedom from discrimination, violence, and oppression.
A Safe & Sustainable Future for All
Policies and practices should promote a healthy and sustainable environment for current and future generations. We should support environmental justice efforts so that all communities are equally protected from environmental harm. All people should be able to live free of violence, be it interpersonal or state violence.
