Untapped potential - European Foundation Funding  for Women and Girls 

Mama Cash, the world's oldest international women's fund based in the Netherlands, commissioned this research study to understand the nature of European foundation support for women and girls and bridge the critical data gap in this area. Goals for this report are both collegial and catalytic. They hope that conversations and collaborations inspired by the research findings will contribute to mobilising leadership as well as realising increased giving in support of the rights, well-being, and empowerment of women and girls.


They focused on this research on funding for women and girls because investment in the human rights of women and girls is not only just and right, it is, we believe, essential to achieving stable democracies based on fairness and dignity. Gender equality has become a cornerstone of the constitutional and legal frameworks of modern democratic states and is a key principle of international human rights law. Investment in women and girls has also been widely shown to further economic development and well-being globally: How well countries support and empower women and girls in the economic, political, educational, and health realms correlates strongly with indicators of national health, including international competitiveness, GDP per capita, and human development outcomes.As The Economist has stated: ‘Forget China, India and the Internet: economic growth is driven by women'.
