At the Equality Fund, our investment strategy is central to our vision of a world where resources move boldly and sustainably to women’s organizations and feminist movements in Canada and around the world, shifting lasting power into their hands.

Through gender-lens investing, we will multiply and magnify the Government of Canada’s initial $300 million CAD contribution, creating a self-sustaining source of funding for gender equality for lifetimes to come. In the process, we will help to influence wider economies, moving gender-lens investing from the margins to the mainstream, elevating the power of women’s organizations, and creating a global ripple effect of change across sectors.

Over time, the returns generated by our investment activities will finance our expanded grantmaking, demonstrating the unique power of the Equality Fund model to deliver sustainable and scalable funding for women’s movements for as long as it takes to build the world we need.
