Unleashing Generosity through collaborative giving

Rachel’s Network

“Impassioned leaders and agents of change dedicated to the stewardship of the earth”

http://www.rachelsnetwork.org


Rachel’s Network is a network of funders whose mission is to promote women as impassioned leaders and agents of change dedicated to the stewardship of the earth.


Rachel's Network offers an array of resources to help women maximize their impact on the issues important to them. The Network provides members with opportunities to build relationships with like-minded women who are dedicated to improving the world around them. The members include foundation presidents, board directors, businesswomen, and community leaders across a broad spectrum of age, issue areas, backgrounds and geographical regions.


Activities include Learning Circles which are self-directed groups that form around common themes and aspirations to focus on a specific area of environmental philanthropy and/or advocacy.  There is also an outreach program to connect Rachel’s Network to members of Congress, a speaker series, teleconference calls, newsletters and an annual members’ meeting.


"I was a ‘scattered' funder, pulled more by heart than head. Rachel's Network helped me realize that I need to focus on supporting substantive policy changes, not merely by throwing money into the passion of the cause."
