About Grantmakers for Girls of Color

Grantmakers for Girls of Color began as a shared resource across philanthropy. As a newly-formed independent entity, fiscally-sponsored by Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors, Grantmakers for Girls of Color will continue to advance its vision for all girls and women to achieve equity and justice in this critical moment in history — and in our future. Grantmakers for Girls of Color openly invites partners and stakeholders to co-create an inclusive space in support of girls and young women of color across programmatic issues and geographic areas.

Love Is Healing Response Fund marks Grantmakers for Girls of Color’s first grantmaking effort as an independent entity.

Through the Love is Healing COVID-19 Response Fund, Grantmakers for Girls of Color is investing $1 million to address the following priorities focused on the needs of girls and gender expansive youth of color: COVID-19-related advocacy and immediate mapping needs; economic and educational response strategies; interventions to support systems impacted youth or survivors of gender-based violence; preventative or responsive mental, physical and emotional health strategies.
