The Case for Supporting Women and Girls

Women are more likely to share their economic gains with their families and communities at large – thus potentially making investment in women and girls a leveraged granting opportunity, no matter what your specific giving area focus. A woman’s economic autonomy is impacted by her level of education and conditions in the workforce, such as availability of health insurance, pension plans, family friendly work environments and flextime.


Women Give San Diego funds organizations who elevate the economic status of women by providing access to or direct education, job training, supportive networks and availability of needed resources. We believe that when women thrive, their communities, state, nation and world also thrive.
