About Give to Women
And Girls Day
Give to Women and Girls Day is an initiative by the Women's Philanthropy Institute (WPI) at Indiana University - Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI) to promote philanthropy for girls and women.
Since 2019, WPI has measured donations to women's and girls' organizations through the Women & Girls Index (WGI). It shows less than 2% of total charitable donations go to organizations dedicated to women and girls, despite nearly 50,000 such organizations being present across the United States.
To change this situation and encourage more donations for women’s and girls’ lives, WPI launched "Give To Women And Girls Day" on October 11, 2022. While you mark your calendars for October 11, 2023, you can also be a part of the #GiveToWomenAndGirls by donating any time of the year!
