Gender Equity Fund
The Gender Equity Fund will support initiatives in the Capital Region that drive cultural, economic and political changes required to make gender equity a reality. Through grants as well as the Foundation’s strategic initiatives, the Fund will support the identification and development of solutions to address issues related to gender equity, focusing on the experiences of self-identified women, non-binary, and gender non-conforming people.
