About this Resource Center


Prospera the International Network of Women’s Funds is a membership association linking Women’s Funds to promote philanthropy with a feminist perspective.

Our mission is to strengthen the work of women's funds to empower women, girls and trans* persons to transform their lives and communities.

Working in Asia, Africa, Europe and the Americas, women's funds are key agents of change. They partner with grassroots women’s, girls’, and trans* organizations and movements to provide them with access to resources, expertise, and structural support. Women’s funds work to ensure the voices and ideas of women, girls and trans* persons are at the forefront of social change.

This online space is dedicated to share the work developed by the Network and its members on the following areas:

  • Resource Mobilization and Feminist Philanthropy
  • Learning Monitoring and Evaluation
  • Women & Environmental Justice
  • Grantmaking & Capacity Building

Please note that some of these sections are restricted for members of the Network. If you require direct assistance or want to learn more about Prospera’s Resource Center please write us to info@prospera-inwf.org
