Join us to create an Arizona where women and girls of all identities thrive.

The Women’s Found­­ation for the State of Arizona (WFSA) innovates to create social, political, and economic change that achieves equity for women and girls of all identities through our integrated framework of research, advocacy, grantmaking, and innovative programmatic solutions.

We Research

Nonpartisan research is at the heart of everything we do. WFSA research identifies the biggest economic barriers and opportunities for women and girls in Arizona to inform our work.

We Innovate

Big problems need bold solutions, so we seek to achieve long-lasting systemic change with innovative approaches. We create, pilot, and scale programs that empower and uplift women and girls like the Unidas Teen Philanthropy Program and Pathways for Single Moms.

We Advocate

WFSA strives to remove systemic barriers facing women and girls through policy change. Together with our statewide coalition of advocates, we write, run, support and enact legislation that levels the playing field.

We Invest

Organizations that support women and girls are chronically underfunded. WFSA aims to change that by investing in a wide range of organizations that position women and girls to thrive through a unique model of unrestricted and renewable grants.

Together, we are changing lives in Arizona.

Recent impact highlights:

  • 2022 has been a banner year for WFSA grantmaking. We have granted more than $1.6 million dollars to organizations, program participants, and individuals across the state.
  • Our statewide expansion continues to be well-received. We are connecting with those most impacted by our state’s challenges and, in partnership, creating sustainable solutions aligned with respective community values.
  • Our Pathways for Single Moms program is now statewide. We are working with partner organizations in Tucson, Phoenix, and Flagstaff to enroll 200 moms in programs that will ensure their families’ economic mobility while offering them a two-generation approach to interrupting the cycle of poverty.
