"Everyone deserves a chance to reach their full potential. Living under constant threat of physical violence by a culture that doesn't value women deprives many people of opportunity. Community and survivor-led organizations know best how to serve their communities' unique experiences and should be supported as crucial partners in the work."
As part of our broader anti-violence and safety strategy, The New York Women’s Foundation has partnered with Tarana Burke, Founder of the ‘me too’ Movement, to launch The Fund for the Me Too Movement and Allies to support the leaders, activists and advocates of the ‘me too’ Movement. With a community-centered approach, The Fund supports programs and initiatives that have long been under-invested–including women of color, immigrants, and LGBTQI individuals–in their work of preventing and eliminating gender-based violence and centering the healing of survivors.
The Fund is a collaborative effort spearheaded and managed by The Foundation in partnership with philanthropic organizations and donors assembled from across the country.
Through this collaboration, philanthropy is mobilized to increase sustained investments for organizations that are working to end gender-based violence:
