Equality for all by making political parity the new normal.
In 2012, the National Women’s Political Caucus launched the NWPC Foundation with the express purpose of building an endowment fund that will provide a reliable income stream for the national organisation as well as to its state an local affiliate chapters for leadership development, education, membership outreach and research projects. Our goal is to reach $1 million by 2020, the 100th anniversary of American women achieving the Right to Vote and run for political office.
The NWPC Foundation has a nonprofit, 501(C)3 tax status. Its funds are deposited at the Greater Kansas City Community Foundation. This woman-run Foundation is the seventh largest Community Foundation in the U.S. and number one for the amount of money donated every year.
NWPC Foundation funds are distributed through an annual, competitive grants program restricted to NWPC Inc, LDERF, and NWPC state and local affiliate caucuses for their programs, events, publications and activities that fit within 501 (C) 3 guidelines.
