Hard won, but not over: Votes for women and the fight for gender equality 100 years later
To our community of supporters:
As Alabama’s only public women’s foundation, The Women’s Fund of Greater Birmingham plays a unique role as a force multiplier. By leveraging resources to accelerate opportunities for women, we accelerate opportunities for all.
Fueled by generous partners like you and strong leadership from our President & CEO and committed staff, 2019 was an inspiring and historic year of firsts for The Women’s Fund. To have a more holistic impact for women, we proudly launched our inaugural public policy platform, signifying a strategic shift in our organizational thinking and acting. This comprehensive Agenda for Women resulted in exciting legislative wins, including the passage of the Equal Pay Act. Additionally, we published our first statewide research publication, deepening our commitment to ensuring women are a targeted part of any solution to the challenges facing our state.
We strengthened the core of our organization: philanthropy. Through our grantmaking, we delivered proven models for solving complex social problems and harnessed the power of collective giving by convening a diverse community of philanthropists unapologetically dedicated to seeing all women thrive.
In our latest annual report, we are proud to share the impact of your support. Without you—our donors, volunteers, corporate partners, grantees, collaborators—none of our work would be possible.
Thank you for being a part of our community, expanding our impact, and sharing our vision of a future where power and possibility are not limited by gender.
