Per their website, during the 2022 fiscal year the foundation announced grants of $5.2M supporting more than 150 grantee partners across America and with 97% of its grantee portfolio comprised of organizations led by women and girls of color. 

The funds support key programs and ongoing initiatives that center the voices of women and girls of color on the frontlines and bolster them through capacity building, policy and advocacy, leadership development, strategic communications, and political organizing.

Over its five decades, the Ms. Foundation for Women has made grants totaling more than $82 million.
