The Funders Network is a network of grantmakers who address issues of population, reproductive health and reproductive rights, both domestically and internationally. Its members share a common goal: to ensure that all people have access to the information and services they need to manage their own fertility and protect and promote their sexual and reproductive health. To that end, the Funders Network seeks to improve communication, foster collaboration, increase resources and enhance the overall effectiveness of grantmakers in this field.

Funders Network members have access to a variety of services designed to keep grantmakers up to date and informed about new developments. Through the Funders Network, members learn and share information on issues, strategies, and grantmaking directions.

To join the Funders Network, please fill out our member registration form. Our staff will review your application and contact you regarding membership.
