Give the Gift of Investing in Women

Money and Power

It’s no secret that most women are more comfortable donating their money than investing it, but philanthropy and angel investing don’t have to be mutually exclusive. Often, the best way to achieve our impact-oriented goals is to both support women through charitable giving and to invest (literally) in the world we want. We want women to have more money in 2022 because money is power. Period.

Luckily, there are myriad ways to invest in female founders—whether you are an experienced angel, new to the game, or you’d like to support someone in your life on their own investment journey. This holiday season, give the gift of investing in women to your loved ones with these offerings by and for some of our favorite female founders.
