Women Give San Diego envisions sustainable economic self-sufficiency and security for all women and girls in San Diego County.
Women Give San Diego takes the position that families and communities thrive when women and girls thrive as fully contributing members of the community. The issues of economic security and self-sufficiency for women in San Diego County are important to the economic health not only of women and their families but the entire County.
Women Give San Diego (WGSD) funds non-profit organizations in San Diego County that offer underserved women and girls the opportunity to become fully engaged in the prosperity of their local communities.
We also advocate for public awareness of women’s economic issues and policy change at the local and state level.
WGSD's model for change balances education, community collaboration and strategic and effective grantmaking.
