The Valentine Foundation is a charitable foundation committed to funding organizations and programs that produce significant change in the social, economic and political systems and institutions that impact the lives of women and girls in order to make those lives more equitable. Grants are given in accordance with specific Social Change Indicators developed by the Women’s Funding Network. The Trustees are interested in funding organizations and programs for girls and women who are systemically underserved.

Programs that solely provide direct service to women and girls, but do not result in meaningful social change, fall outside the Valentine Foundation mission and will not be funded, since they do not meet our social change criteria. The Valentine Foundation primarily funds organizations serving the Greater Philadelphia area or that have national impact with a local connection.

The Valentine Foundation does not fund the following:

  • Organizations that are not determined to be a tax-exempt organization under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code
  • Scholarships
  • Endowments
  • Capital campaigns
  • International initiatives
  • Individuals
  • Religious organizations for religious purposes
  • Political organizations for political purposes
