With nearly 100 years of shared history of advocating for women and girls, the New Hampshire Women’s Foundation was established in late 2014 as a result of a merger between the Women’s Fund of New Hampshire and the New Hampshire Women’s Initiative. The organization continues a commitment of advocacy for women and girls and the advancement of gender equality in the Granite State that was established over the last century by the Women’s Fund of NH, the NH Women’s Initiative, the Commission on the Status of Women, the Women’s Lobby and Alliance, and the Women’s Policy Institute.
The NH Women’s Foundation’s mission is to promote opportunity and equality for women and girls in New Hampshire through research, education, philanthropy, and advocacy. The NH Women’s Foundation believes that creating family-friendly workplaces is essential to overcoming gender-based stigmas and outdated traditions and is therefore essential to achieving economic gender equality, thus supporting its mission. http://nhwomensfoundation.org/
