What we do
A Feminist Funder Collaborative
Fenomenal Funds aims to strengthen the feminist funding ecosystem by resourcing women’s funds who are members of the Prospera International Network of Women’s Funds (INWF). Women’s funds, as philanthropic actors, provide financial and other support to advance the human rights of women, girls, and LGBTQI people in countries around the world.
Women’s funds come from the movements they serve and as such, have a long track record of knowing where and how to support organizations that are working to achieve gender justice in their communities, countries, and regions. Today, women’s funds are reaching women’s rights and feminist movements in some of the most challenging contexts and are at the leading edge of the most pressing human rights issues.
As a fund, this collaborative uses an ecosystem approach to resource and support the 44 autonomous women’s funds who are members of the Prospera INWF.
Prospera INWF is a network with more than 20 years of experience of collective work to strengthen the feminist funding ecosystem in the Global South and East. Their goal is to influence the philanthropic sector towards making more and better funding available for women’s funds and feminist movements globally.
