The Canadian Women’s Foundation is launching a round of Investment Readiness Program (IRP) funding to help build the capacity and investment readiness of social purpose organizations and boost women’s sector participation in the social finance market, so they are better able to access the Government of Canada’s proposed Social Finance Fund or other investment opportunities.
Through the Investment Readiness Program funding, the Foundation aims to boost women’s sector participation in social innovation and social finance. This is especially important for organizations that serve women who face multiple barriers and are underrepresented in this field.
The Foundation will support and encourage the growth and readiness of women-serving organizations to join the social innovation and social finance ecosystem. This may include support to social purpose organizations that currently do not consider themselves part of that ecosystem. The Foundation seeks to prioritize funding to organizations that reach women who face multiple barriers, in communities where the needs are greatest.
Through the Investment Readiness Funding, we aim to:
- Increase the number and variety of groups engaged in the social finance ecosystem
- Build awareness
- Enhance capacity
- Increase accessibility to expert advice and information
- Contribute to learning on what works
- Apply a gender lens throughout using GBA+
