We are a global political network of bold, intersectional, diverse, and autonomous women’s and feminist funds that nurture transformation by resourcing, supporting, and accompanying movements led by women, girls, trans, intersex, and non-binary people, and collectives primarily on the Global South and East.
Women’s and feminist funds members of Prospera are crucial for gender, social and environmental transformation. Funds provide flexible and long-term resources, sustained support and accompaniment to movements led by women, girls, trans, non-binary, and intersex people and collectives worldwide.
In Prospera, we believe fiercely in the power of feminist movements to bring this world into being and in the unique role that women’s and feminist funds play in resourcing them toward this end.
We are a diverse and interconnected network committed to resource justice through our feminist grantmaking as well as our advocacy work. We aim to transform power and shift practices within the global aid and philanthropic ecosystems in order to redistribute resources to intersectional feminist and women’s movements primarily in the Global South and East in equitable and socially just ways.
We strengthen and support our network of women’s and feminist funds from within with care, collaboration, solidarity, transparency, and co-responsibility to ensure our collective power, sustainability, and flourishing.
In the last five years, Prospera’s grantmaking increased significantly, bringing flexible, predictable and long-lasting funding to movements mainly located in the Global South and East. We are shifting from a place of scarcity towards one of abundance and collective sustainability, but there’s still work to be done. Find out what 5 years of collective action, reach, influence and opportunities can achieve!
We join our members from the Ukrainian Women’s Fund*, FemFund Poland*, the Bulgarian Fund for Women*, Urgent Action Fund for Women’s Human Rights*, and all feminist activists and movements around the world to #StopTheWar and ensure funding reaches feminist groups, as well as immediate humanitarian aid to the people of Ukraine and neighboring countries.
Prospera INWF members are supporting local organizations and frontline activists with critical resources during this time. They are quickly and effectively responding, mobilizing resources and amplifying the lived realities of Ukrainians, especially women, girls, trans and non-binary persons.

We stand in solidarity with all human rights defenders in Afghanistan, as they find ways to challenge and negotiate this crisis, in the face of closed borders, disclosed identities, and a system which has completely annihilated their access to safety and security. As both emergency-response and long-term funders of grassroots and local groups, Prospera INWF calls on the funding community to join us in coordinating responses amongst different funding networks, collaboratives, and communities in such ways that funding.
