The ultimate goal of the Catalyst Fund is to build a more effective US movement for reproductive justice by mobilizing new funding and capacity building resources to women of color-led organizations. Catalyst has partnered with 20 national foundations, 11 local funders, and 1200 individual donors to help generate $8.6 million for reproductive justice organizations. The organizations supported by Catalyst (42% of which are led by young women under the age of 35) are playing an instrumental role in supporting emerging leadership for the broader US progressive movement. Central to Groundswell’s effort is amplifying the stories of these grassroots organizations in the philanthropic sector to generate increased resources for their work.
