Are you a bold woman funder or investor who wants to leverage your resources for a regenerative and equitable economy, clean air and water, and a healthy environment for all? Do you want to be a part of a dynamic community of sounding boards, allies, and friends? We invite you to join our community and become a Rachel today.

Since 2000, our network has collectively granted over $2.8 million towards women leaders at the frontlines of our movement and organizations fighting for a thriving planet and communities. We offer in-person events and webinars on timely topics, collective funding and networking opportunities, and tools to take your philanthropy to the next level (see more network benefits below).

Members give an annual, tax-deductible grant of $7,500 and can contribute through their foundation, donor advised fund, a personal check, or a stock gift. New members pay an introductory rate of $5,000 for their first year.

If you’re not a funder (or not yet ready to join), but want to keep up with Rachel’s Network, sign up here to join our mailing list.
