Empowering Women Together Fund

About

Let’s join together for women’s empowerment. Not only limited to women donors but calling any and all at Draper who may be personally motivated to support this noble cause or donate in honor of extraordinary women in your life. Our chosen funds address a range of issues from safety, community and advocacy in Cambridge to justice in our nation and the personal and professional needs impacting women’s dignity across the globe. In a nod to Draper’s mission, one even aims to save lives at scale by supporting digitally-empowered community health solutions. Gender equality is a human right, but our world faces a persistent gap in access to opportunities and decision-making power. Globally, no country has fully attained gender equality (U.S. ranks #19) and women's empowerment is a critical aspect of achieving it.

National Womens Law Center

The National Women's Law Center has worked since its inception in 1972 to protect and advance the progress of women and girls at work, in school, and in virtually every aspect of their lives -- with special attention given to the needs of low-income women and their families. The Center brings to its work extensive subject expertise in such areas as family income security, employment, education, health and reproductive rights.

Dignity Matters Inc

Dignity Matters collects, purchases and supplies feminine hygiene products, bras, and underwear to homeless women and girls, enabling them to stay healthy, regain self- confidence, and live with basic dignity. Dignity Matters also improves school attendance by providing period protection to school-aged girls in need, right within their schools.

Living Goods

Living Goods believes that every mother and child should have access to basic health care in their own community, no matter where they live. We seek to improve health across the developing world for good by staffing every community with a well-equipped, properly paid, and effectively managed Community Health Worker. The widespread adoption of high-impact, low-cost community health will be every bit as transformative as a new vaccine or the eradication of a disease. Millions of lives will be saved. Entire countries will be healthier and more productive. Government will have prioritized community health in its policies, plans, and budgets.
