CFW focuses on the issues that affect all women, girls, trans, and gender nonbinary people.

 Chicago Foundation for Women envisions a world in which all women, girls, trans, and gender nonbinary people have the opportunity to thrive in safe, just and healthy communities.

Who We Are

Since 1985, Chicago Foundation for Women has invested more than $45 million through over 4,000 grants, annually impacting 226,000 women, girls, trans, and gender nonbinary individuals across the Chicago region, so they are healthy, safe, and economically secure. Nearly four decades later, CFW continues to be the only organization in the region to take a comprehensive approach to understand and address the issues impacting Chicago-area women, girls, trans, and gender nonbinary individuals.
