We work toward a just and equitable California, in which all people and communities, in every region of the state, thrive.

For over 30 years, the Foundation has been not just a grantmaker, but a relentless advocate for social change. As a publicly supported foundation, we raise every dollar that we use for strategic grantmaking, public policy, and bringing together innovative women leaders.We have built up a dynamic network comprised of dedicated donor activists, leaders and grassroots organizations working throughout the state.

With decades of momentum and sixteen legislative wins to date, the Foundation is known as an early funder of human trafficking intervention and prevention, lesbian and transgender rights, environmental health, criminal justice work and campaigns to build women's economic security.
