Gender-wise resources

Thank you for requesting our Gender-wise resources. Please find below the links to download them.

The Guide to Gender-wise Philanthropy outlines the case for investing in women and girls, provides an introduction to gender lens concepts, shares case studies and suggests steps for those at the beginning of the journey, as well as actions for those further progressed in gender-wise philanthropic practice.

The Gender-wise Toolkit for Grantmakers is a practical step by step ‘how to’ resource that complements the Guide to Gender-wise Philanthropy providing funders with simple downloadable tools.

We trust that you will become a Champion of Change for the Gender-wise approach and recommend these resources to others. However, rather than share these resources directly, we ask that you encourage people to visit our website to sign up for them. This enables us to collect data and build a community of users.

We would love to know what you think of our resources and how you plan to use it. Please get in touch to provide feedback or if you wish to discuss any elements of the resources.

We also offer presentations and workshops to philanthropic Boards and staff. Get in touch for more information.

With thanks and kindest regards,
