Secretary Clinton announced the launch of the “Secretary's International Fund for Women and Girls” this morning during remarks for the Summit on Entrepreneurship. The Fund is a State Department-led public-private partnership committed to providing flexible, rapid, targeted, and high-impact grants to nongovernmental organizations working to meet the critical needs of women and girls around the world. It is administered by the Secretary’s Office of Global Women’s Issues.

 

The Fund invests in efficient and innovative solutions to combat violence, improve health and education, promote climate change solutions, and create economic and political opportunities for women and girls. The Fund allows organizations to move quickly and effectively to address new challenges and advance creative ideas through flexible grants and rapid funding. It prioritizes investments in women and girls that enhance local ownership, community engagement, and capacity building. 

The Women’s Fund welcomes all contributions – large and small – to address the global empowerment of women and girls. Corporations, foundations, and other large contributors are encouraged to explore partnership commitments directly with Fund staff. Donors can target gifts to specific areas of focus or authorize general investment in the Fund to meet emerging, unanticipated, and critical humanitarian challenges. 

Additional information about the Fund can be found on the website of the Office of Global Women’s Issues. 

Ambassador-at-Large for Global Women’s Issues Melanne Verveer is available for interviews about the Fund. The press contact is Ruth Bennett, BennettRE@state.gov.
