One of the most common questions I receive is what impact Women Moving Millions is having as an organization. During my five years in leadership, I have seen time and again the tremendous power and effect our work has had on members and the movements we work in service of. This year’s annual report is a celebration of this individual and collective impact we are witnessing within our community and our broader ecosystem of partners in order to build a more equitable and just future for all.

This past year, Women Moving Millions surpassed one billion dollars cumulatively mobilized for women and girls from our community. While we are exceedingly proud of this milestone, we are even more proud of the individual stories we hear from members and their grantees about how we are showing up in the world, modeling a new and more feminist approach to bold philanthropy, and laying the seeds for transformative change.

Looking ahead to 2024, our work to unlock greater resources for a gender equal world will take on even greater urgency today than when we began our journey and mission more than 15 years ago. As we move away from the long shadow cast by the pandemic, we find our world today less democratic and less secure. The unprecedented assault on women’s rights worldwide calls upon us to continue our relentless advocacy, pushing ourselves even further to consider new ways of thinking about and tackling the challenges facing our increasingly fragile world.

In the new year, our vision and ambitions are inspired by our track record of catalyzing unprecedented funds to the movement: from our founding campaign, which raised a groundbreaking $181M for 40 women’s funds across the U.S., to our ‘Give Bold, Get Equal’ campaign, which secured $110M in new member commitments amidst the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, and most recently, the Women’s Power and Influence Matching Fund, seeded by Pivotal Ventures in 2022, which activated over $11 million in new giving in record timing.

Our work will remain rooted in the fundamental belief in the exponential power and potential of bringing together a community of women who share a common vision and commitment to investing in their philanthropic leadership to drive change. We know that by leveraging our collective power and influence, we can achieve more than just incremental impact — we can drive the change the world needs today.

Thank you for all you’ve done, in these pages and beyond, to strengthen our community and build a gender equal world!

In partnership,

Sarah Haacke Byrd
Chief Executive Officer, Women Moving Millions

WMM Releases New Report

In 2023, we surveyed the WMM membership in our inaugural Community Impact Survey. We are thrilled to share our results and learnings through our new report, Catalyzing Change: Powering the Movement through Community & Collaboration (2024). The results of this survey not only validated our theory of change, but also provided us with a deeper understanding of how our community is impacting members’ personal growth, philanthropic leadership, advocacy, and grantmaking.
