Chicago Foundation for Women

About Us

Each day, more than 300,000 women in our community struggle to put food on the table, to keep themselves and their children safe and healthy, and to lift themselves up from poverty and lack of opportunity.

Chicago Foundation for Women works for them.

Chicago Foundation for Women puts time, talent, and money to work for women and girls who lack economic security and opportunity, freedom from violence, and equitable access to health care and services. Since 1985, Chicago Foundation for Women has awarded nearly $30 million dollars in just 30 years to hundreds of local organizations. That level of success is only made possible when we - donors, grantees, and community partners - are all in.
