We envision a world where girls, femmes and gender-expansive youth of Color have the safety, freedom, wellness, and resources to thrive, to dream, and to lead.

At Grantmakers for Girls of Color (G4GC), we are striving to create a philanthropic home that follows the leadership of girls, femmes and gender-expansive youth of Color, and invests in their liberation.

G4GC is a philanthropic organization with a mission to cultivate and mobilize resources in support of girls* of color. Our mission to resource and support transformative organizing work that dismantles systems of oppression in the U.S. and territories is founded on an infrastructure that reflects our values, a culture of partnership, healing, reciprocity, and love.
