Chicago Foundation for Women (CFW) invests in women and girls as catalysts, building strong communities for all. CFW funds organizations working to solve the biggest problems facing women and girls: economic insecurity, violence, and lack of access to health care and information. In addition to grantmaking, CFW invests in developing women leaders and advocates, and brings together diverse coalitions to collaborate, share resources, and develop solutions. Since its founding in 1985, CFW has invested nearly $41 million in hundreds of organizations supporting women, girls, trans, and gender nonbinary people across the Chicago region.
