Welcoming MADRE’s newest community member

I’m thrilled to share that MADRE has received a deeply generous $15 million gift from novelist and philanthropist, MacKenzie Scott. This transformative gift expands what we can make possible for women and girls facing war and climate disaster around the world. 

We’re immensely appreciative that Mackenzie’s support comes without restrictions. Her trust in our feminist funding is a bold endorsement of MADRE that will help us grow our circle of supporters. It’s also a moment for us to celebrate you. 

Your commitment and trust spreads MADRE’s vision. And your continued support fuels the critical frontline actions of our local partners. The women leaders who respond urgently when war breaks out, ensuring families are fed and safe. The girls who push climate solutions in their communities and in the halls of power. And the local activists who fight for reproductive rights and democracy as two sides of the same coin. 

We’re grateful to have greater solidarity with our partners, as they put peace and care into action. A more just world is possible when we amplify and trust women’s leadership, together. 

We welcome MacKenzie to the MADRE family and thank you for standing with us as we build a better future with women and girls around the world. 

In gratitude,
