Since our founding in 1973, we have had a history of supporting the birth and growth of social justice movements in the U.S.—from women’s safety and reproductive justice, to economic justice, child care and the re-building of the Gulf Coast. The Ms. Foundation has consistently pioneered and supported cutting-edge strategies within and across feminist and social justice movements. We have been willing to take risks to support emerging issues, identify gaps in resources, and inform the fields of philanthropy and social justice to create inclusive and sustainable social change for all. Our grants -- paired with skills-building, networking and other strategic opportunities -- enable organizations to advance women's grassroots solutions across race and class, and to build social movements within and across three areas: Economic Justice, Safety and Women's Health. We strive to promote organizations committed to feminist movement-building.
Our mission is to build women’s collective power In the U.S. to advance equity and justice for all. We achieve our mission by investing in, and strengthening the capacity of women-led movements to advance meaningful social, cultural and economic change in the lives of women.
Our vision is a just and safe world where power and possibility are not limited by gender, race, class, sexual orientation, gender identity, disability or age. We believe that equity and inclusion are the cornerstones of a true democracy in which the worth and dignity of every person are valued.
We accomplish our mission and make our vision a reality by actively living our core values and holding each other accountable for them:
Integrity: We believe in holding ourselves responsible and accountable for all that we say in order to build an aligned, principled and powerful movement for gender equity.
Trust and respect: We believe in the truth that comes from those we work with and those most impacted by the issues affecting their communities. We believe in honoring their voices and supporting their leadership.
Interconnectedness: We believe that by achieving equity for women of color, we achieve equity for all. Given the complexity of the issues we face, we are committed to addressing issues holistically, understanding that we need to build power and alignment across multiple movements and sectors to win the battles we are facing.
Social justice: We believe that structural changes are needed in order to increase opportunities for those who are least well off politically, socially and economically.
