WomenStrong International is a non-profit private operating foundation, based in the United States, that is building a global community of women-led organizations working to advance the rights and wellbeing of women and girls worldwide.
Our grantee partners receive unrestricted funding, access to a tailored program of technical and capacity support, and the opportunity to participate in a peer Learning Lab, where they can share with fellow partners what’s working, and what’s not.
Since our founding, WomenStrong has invested more than $20 million in direct grants to women’s organizations and in supporting these organizations with technical assistance, opportunities to present their work, and other organizational strengthening and learning activities.
Currently, WomenStrong is reliant on limited philanthropic funding. Following a fundraising audit and assessment, conducted in 2022, and the completion of an ambitious new three-year organizational strategy (2023-2025), we recognize the critical importance of diversifying our donor base and implementing a comprehensive fundraising strategy to ensure our sustainability as an organization. We have an exciting and progressive model, and we believe that there is enormous potential to forge new and sustainable partnerships with a variety of funders interested in supporting women’s and girls’ rights around the world.
We are therefore looking for a highly experienced fundraising consultant/firm who will help us guide our approach to reaching, soliciting, and forging impactful relationships with the donor community. The successful applicant will be an inspirational fundraiser committed to WomenStrong’s goal of providing transformational support for women-led organizations working on women’s empowerment around the world.
