Illuminating Impact: Why Gender Matters for Funders in Any Issue Area

April 30, 2024

In 2021, The Bridgespan Group partnered with Shake the Table to investigate how funders could better support feminist movements. The resulting report, Lighting the Way: A Report for Philanthropy on the Power and Promise of Feminist Movements, helped funders understand why and how to channel philanthropic dollars into feminist movements. These powerhouses for social change remain a huge and largely untapped opportunity for philanthropy.With this report, they expand our scope to share practices that can help any funder in any field increasingly consider gender in their grantmaking. Gender-focused work is not just for "gender funders." It's for climate funders, education funders, health funders—any funder seeking to speed progress on the issues they care most about.

Philanthropy in Asia: Working Paper No.4 The Emergence of Chinese Women Philanthropists in Singapore, 1900-1945: The Sisterhoods of the "Sor Hei"

October 1, 2018

In the late 19th century, an extraordinary cohort of unmarried women left their native Chinese shores in groups called sisterhoods, to boldly carve out a life for themselves in distant lands. They did this to earn their own money and be mistresses of their own fates.Many of these brave women were determined not to be forced into marriage and while remaining celibate became Sor Hei, meaning "those who bun up their hair" (the hallmark of married women). In sworn sisterhoods, the Sor Hei found work in the British colonies of Singapore and Hong Kong and became icons in Singapore social history as Samsui por (construction workers) and Amahs (domestic helpers).This paper briefly examines how these humble women broke new economic and social ground for Chinese women. It explains why they left Canton to live in the British colonies, and how they survived in these alien lands. It also examines the social constructs and networks that they evolved for their own community, as single women living within larger overseas Chinese migrant groups. We also trace how their financial independence enabled them to become among the first Chinese women diaspora philanthropists.

Vital Funding: Investing in LGBTQ Health and Wellbeing

January 22, 2015

This report assesses the scale and character of foundation funding for the health and well-being of LGBTQ communities. Drawing on the data collected for annual tracking reports on LGBTQ funding, we find that domestic foundation funding for LGBTQ health totaled $50.4 million for 2011 - 2013. Considering the magnitude of the health disparities facing LGBTQ communities, this is a fairly modest amount -- and it is highly dependent on a small set of dedicated funders. When it comes to LGBTQ health, we face daunting challenges, but we also have impressive assets to build on. As a community and as a movement, we have time and again demonstrated our ability to come together to support one another, to advocate for ourselves, and to build lasting institutions. Across the country, there are hundreds of LGBTQ community centers, health centers, and HIV/AIDS service agencies, and other community groups advancing LGBTQ health. There are also a growing number of non-LGBTQ-focused institutions -- from hospitals to research centers -- seeking to improve their competence, expertise, and effectiveness in working with LGBTQ communities.
