Women & Wealth: Insights for Grantmakers - Grantmaker Brief from the Asset Funders Network

Improving women's ability to build wealth is not only good for women, but is essential for the economic well-being of children, families, and our community. The women's wealth gap has been largely overlooked in discussions of women's economic security, yet wealth (the value of assets minus debts) is the most comprehensive indicator of financial health.  

Our new brief finds the wealth gap to be significant  - during their working years, single women have only 32 cents for every dollar of wealth owned by single men.

Women & Wealth: Insights for Grantmakers, the new grantmaker brief from the Asset Funders Network, authored by Mariko Chang, PhD, examines the causes and dimensions of the women's wealth gap and provides recommendations and best practices for grantmakers to reduce the women's wealth gap and improve women's access to the wealth escalator.
