The Equality Fund is leveraging innovative partnerships to fund women's rights organizations

Why It Matters

The Equality Fund launched with $300 million in funding from the Canadian government and ambitious plans to raise another over $1 billion in funding over the next 15 years. Here's how the Canadian-born initiative is using collaboration, partnerships, and a strong feminist vision to guide their path.

We started #FutureOfGood Twitter chats to dive deeper into hot topics that have been resonating with our community. It’s hosted Thursdays from 12-1 p.m. ET.

This week, we spoke with Jess Tomlin, co-founder and partner of the Equality Fund and CEO of the MATCH International Women’s Fund, about the launch of the Equality Fund, its ground-breaking partnerships and collaborations, and building a bold, feminist movement.

Why will Canadians remember the announcement of the Equality Fund as a historic moment?

Canada will remember the announcement of the Equality Fund as a historic moment because it was the day you could hear feminists roar. Canada will remember that day because the Equality Fund is the first of its kind. Because it was built by the women’s movement for the women’s movement.
