Women & Girls Index 2023 Research Brief
Embargo Lift Date
The Women & Girls Index (WGI) provides the only systematically generated, comprehensive data on charitable organizations dedicated to women and girls. The WGI tracks the landscape of women’s and girls’ organizations in the U.S., including the amount of philanthropic support they receive from individuals, foundations, and corporations.
The WGI is a cornerstone project of the Equitable Giving Lab (EGL), an initiative to better understand charitable giving to diverse communities and under-resourced groups. The Lab currently comprises research on giving to LGBTQ+ and to women’s and girls’ organizations, in addition to case studies of organizations serving these populations. The data are hosted at WomenAndGirlsIndex.org, including a searchable database of all WGI organizations, a downloadable copy of the full Index, and more detail about the Index and the methodology used to create and update the WGI.
