Women’s Funding Network and its member funds have made a 10-year commitment to dismantling poverty and building economic security for women and their families. The Women, Faith and Poverty Initiative is an important part of this commitment, engaging members of the faith community to join the discussion, take action and create a policy agenda that will address the needs of low-income women and their families.

Women's Funding Network is a founding member of the Women’s Economic Security Campaign (WESC), which uses the power and resources of women’s funds across the U.S. to increase opportunity for low-income women and their families. WESC members strive to elevate the voices of women’s funds to ensure that the problems faced by women living in poverty and their families are at the center of efforts to fix our nation’s economy and create opportunity for all.

We sponsor the Women and Poverty section of Spotlight on Poverty and Opportunity, an initiative led by 15 national foundations that highlights the unique challenges facing low-income women and their families. Since its launch in October 2007, Spotlight has become a “go to” destination for advocates, congressional staff, state and local government officials, and journalists looking for the latest news and ideas on poverty and opportunity.
