We Are a New Kind of Fund

About Us

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.

 

Our Structure

The Girls First Fund is a fund of Capital for Good USA, a U.S. 501(c)(3) public charity. Capital for Good USA disburses grants on behalf of the Girls First Fund.

Geneva Global, a philanthropy consulting company and certified B corporation, supports the Girls First Fund and Capital for Good USA by providing strategic advice, program and grant management, donor engagement, and operations services.
