The Collaborative for Gender + Reproductive Equity (CGRE) is a one-of-a-kind community that creates the space for funders to learn together, amplify the impact of their giving, and accelerate change in five-year increments.
We provide funding to unite advocates who are pioneering new approaches across issue silos to defend gender, reproductive, and racial equity and work towards a future where every person has the resources and autonomy to thrive.Learn more about us
CGRE resources organizations led by and for those most impacted by gender, reproductive, and racial inequities. We focus on four core areas for transformative progress:
Even before the fall of Roe v. Wade, state governments were eroding reproductive rights and gender equality. Our multi-year support for state-level organizations and campaigns ensures advocates can continue defending fundamental freedoms.
CGRE supports efforts to establish non-partisan judiciaries supportive of gender, reproductive, and racial equity. We push to ensure that state courts are a strong and fair safeguard for reproductive rights and gender equity and reflect the diversity of the communities they serve.
Our Alliance Table fosters innovation to support organizations responding to coordinated attacks on abortion access, LGBTQ+ rights, and racial justice. We fund cross-issue collaborations that expand the tent of those supportive of equity and invest in proactive strategies to weaken the opposition.
Through our Opportunity Fund, we provide real-time support and resources to advocates in moments of crisis. We’re there for organizations and communities when they need it most.
We listen to and learn from our grantee partners to ensure our grants reflect their goals and meet the challenges of the moment.
"CGRE’s support came at a critical time for Public Rights Project as we were litigating in Michigan post-Dobbs. CGRE helped us secure a court order to keep abortion legal in the state until voters had a chance to pass the ballot measure in November."
"With rapid response funding from CGRE, the Repro Legal Defense Fund has supported over two dozen clients with pretrial release funds, legal fees, and holistic case support and expanded our scope."
"Today, schools are attacked for providing inclusive sex education, supporting LGBTQ students, or teaching honest Black history. CGRE/the Alliance Table not only provided Advocates’ staff with funding to assist schools under attack, but as importantly opened its Rolodex to help us build bridges at the local level between Reproductive Health, Rights and Justice; LGBTQ health and rights; and civil rights organizations. We are all stronger when we stand together."
