Our Voices, Our Environment

At Global Greengrants Fund, Prospera International Network of Women’s Funds and Wallace Global Fund, we are celebrating the release of a landmark report, undertaken in partnership with the Global Alliance for Green and Gender Action.  Our Voices, Our Environment is a resounding call to action for women and the environment, asking that funders capitalize on a moment of significant opportunity and great urgency to ensure a healthy planet for all.

The study shows that women are at the forefront of environmental action locally and globally. Funders are providing more than $100 million each year to support the intersection of women and the environment. This funding is resulting in impact, creating a win-win situation for funders of the environment and human rights.

Despite this good news, a huge gap remains: less than 0.1% of foundation grants and 0.2% of foundation dollars are supporting the nexus of women and the environment, which creates a vast opportunity for funders large and small.

Today, we ask you to join us in a conversation about the opportunity to invest in women and the environment.  As a start, please:

1)    Download and read the full report here.

2)    Share the report with your networks and on social media.

3)    Be part of an ongoing dialogue about women and the environment. Contact Ursula Miniszewski,, to learn more.
