We focus on girls, families, and communities because we believe they are in the best position to create lasting, local change and to address the root causes of child marriage. The Girls First Fund is the first funding partnership of its size focused on ending child marriage with grantmaking directed to community-based and locally-focused national organizations. As a fund, we provide an easy mechanism for other philanthropists to join us—to learn, to grant, and to raise the visibility of ending child marriage and early unions. Together, we can amplify the important work of our grantee partners.
The Girls First Fund is a fiscally sponsored program of Capital for Good USA, a 501(c)(3) public charity. Donations to Capital for Good USA are tax deductible to the extent provided by applicable law. Link to: https://www.capitalforgood.org
