Third Wave Fund Mission
Third Wave Fund resources and supports youth-led Gender Justice activism to advance the political power, well-being, and self determination of communities of color and low-income communities.
About Third Wave
Third Wave Fund is an activist fund led by and for women of color, intersex, queer, and trans people under 35 years of age. We work to ensure that young folks are decision-makers at the cutting edge of philanthropy where they are commonly absent.
We hold the following beliefs:
For twenty years, Third Wave has been a leader in gender justice, a movement to end patriarchy, transphobia, homophobia, and misogyny. We fund groups that recognize gender oppression is linked to classism, racism, ageism, and ableism, and that only by squashing all forms of oppression will justice be realized.
As a community fund, we partner with donors and activists to ensure that young people have the tools to make lasting change in their communities. We have an impact through our grantmaking, leadership development, and philanthropic advocacy initiatives.
