The Families and Workers Fund (FWF) is a platform for collaborative action and a pooled $57M+ fund supported by 25 diverse funders working together to build a more equitable economy that uplifts all. FWF was founded on the belief that the United States is experiencing a once-in-a-generation opening to advance economic security, opportunity, and mobility—especially for those who have been most locked out of the country’s prosperity. FWF deploys strategic and nimble grants, as well as targeted programs, community engagement, and partnerships, to leverage the possibility of this moment toward three longer-term impact goals:
Activate Philanthropy: Catalyze strategic collaboration in philanthropy to advance a more equitable economy and grow the total amount of resources committed to good jobs and economic opportunity.
Recover Up - Jobs that Sustain and Uplift: Accelerate an equitable recovery by delivering jobs that enable economic security and mobility and leverage new federal and employer investments that have the potential to propel scale.
21st Century Benefits: Reimagine and repair the public benefits systems by supporting the introduction of new technologies, delivery models, and policies that improve access and address racial, gender, and other disparities.
Across all of FWF’s work, the team prioritizes equity and dignity—i.e., ensuring an approach is designed for and with the most impacted communities and centers their voices and leadership—as well as implementation excellence and potential for scale. This enables FWF to work in ways that are both people-driven and data-driven and to break down silos. FWF supports grantees that share its values of equity and are also relentlessly focused on scale, such as by investing in strong tech systems, sustainable financial models, and healthy teams. In 2020, over 80% of FWF’s grants went to organizations led by (or with 50% or more of their leadership who are) Black, Indigenous, or other people or color (BIPOC); immigrants or the children of immigrants; women; and/or LGBTQ people. The largest proportion of FWF’s grants went to women of color-led organizations.
