The Women's Foundation (TWF), is the oldest and largest philanthropic fund for women in the Western United States. Since 1979, TWF has awarded over $7 million in grants to over 550 organizations. These organizations serve low income women and girls throughout California, primarily the 50 counties in northern and central California and, more recently, the Mexico side of the US/Mexico border. TWF funds programs for preventing violence against women and girls, promoting access to healthcare, developing women and girls' leadership, and ensuring economic justice. TWF targets programs that promote and protect the human rights of women and girls in the civil, political, economic, and social arenas.
