HELP US CHANGE THE WORLD
As we celebrate our 25-year herstory of women’s activism for a just, healthy and peaceful planet, we are excited to share with you the launch of WEDO’s Legacy Fund: Herstory, Voice, Leadership
A 25-year milestone is no small feat, particularly given that our fight for women’s human rights and environmental sustainability often struggles for recognition and funding. But, throughout our rich herstory, we, alongside countless allies have surpassed obstacles and we are looking to towards a more hopeful and just future. Through the Legacy Fund, we call you to join us in this effort.
WHAT IS THE LEGACY FUND?
Our Legacy Fund honors our 25-year herstory and allows us to build on our illustrious past and create an organization with a sustainable future. We are asking you to act as one of our initial champions of the Legacy Fund by donating to our mission.
We are still here, 25 years later, with the dream that our Legacy Fund will indefinitely provide a space for the voices of women activists worldwide for the next 25 years to come.

OUR STORY & IMPACT
HERSTORY. It began simply: a group of friends determined to be the change they wanted to see. International in character – core founding members included US congresswoman Bella Abzug, Nobel Laureate Wangari Maathai of Kenya, Thais Corral of Brazil and Vandana Shiva of India. WEDO set out to open the doors to women’s participation in the enormous environmental issues facing the planet.
VOICE. WEDO’s strength lies in our ability to facilitate and link social movements to international policy-making processes, ensuring that women’s voices are heard and included. We are a trailblazer that provides spaces for women to share their perspectives and organize for change.
LEADERSHIP. WEDO has always been an innovative leader, demonstrating the existing linkages among environmental resources, social and economic justice, political participation and women’s rights. With a small but mighty staff, and partners and allies around the world, we create initiatives that impact policies at the international level, increase participation of women at the decision-making table, and mentor the next generation of activists and leaders.
INVEST IN WOMEN’S LEADERSHIP
Your donation guarantees the creation of the next generation of women leaders, including an investment in young feminist leadership. It will expand leadership development and advocacy skills training for hundreds of women to ensure they are empowered as decision-makers. The fund will also broaden our communications platform so we can tell even more stories that amplify the actions of women worldwide, as well as engage and develop the next generation of leaders who will carry on our legacy.
