Details about the Women's Impact Montréal (WIM) Collective Fund at FGM



Despite tremendous needs, organizations for women and girls receive little funding – just 1.6% of all philanthropic giving according to a recent estimate. In response, the Foundation of Greater Montréal is launching a new giving initiative:
 
The Women’s Impact Montréal Collective Fund (WIM)
