    Empower Women & Girls

    Highly rated charities focusing on women and girls promoting health, education, rights, and social services.

    Women have made great strides in the fight for greater equality in the United States and around the world, but there is still work to do. However, in many parts of the world and within certain cultures, girls still face barriers to education, healthcare, and protection against child marriage.


    Across the globe, March is recognized as Women’s History Month, a time to celebrate women’s contributions throughout time. International Women’s Day, observed on March 8, also stands to highlight the accomplishments of women, particularly within the workforce.


    These nonprofits focus their efforts on a variety of causes and issues that benefit women and girls, both locally and internationally. As highly rated charities, they meet or exceed industry standards and perform as well as, or better than, most organizations in their cause areas.


    You can give confidently to these organizations, knowing that you are supporting organizations with missions that are focused on assisting and empowering women and girls.
