Gifts to the Catalyst Fund for Reproductive Justice at Chicago Foundation for Women are matched, dollar for dollar, by the Groundswell Fund. These critical dollars support grassroots, Women-of-Color-led advocacy work to advance reproductive justice, for all of us.
For the 12th year, Chicago Foundation for Women is raising dollars to match funds provided by the Groundswell Fund’s core program, the Catalyst Fund, a national initiative to bring new funding to Women of Color-led reproductive justice work. Through this partnership, the Foundation will be able to provide funds for grants to Chicago-area reproductive justice projects led by Women of Color.
Part of Chicago Foundation for Women’s mission has always been to improve women’s access to health services and information. This fund will amplify efforts to expand the reproductive justice platform and diversify the voices of communities of color on these issues.
