We’re proud to support Co-Impact and its work to build just and equitable systems.

By bringing together philanthropists, foundations, and private sector partners from around the world, the organization is able to pool funding that supports efforts to drive systems change in the sectors of health, education and economic opportunity, in Africa, Asia, and Latin America. Together with locally rooted program partners and advisors, Co-Impact forms a global collaborative that advances inclusive systems change, gender equality, and women’s leadership through grantmaking and influencing philanthropy.

The Target Foundation’s general operating funding will help support Co-Impact's Gender Fund. The Fund aims to raise and grant US $1 billion and provide predominantly women-led locally-rooted organizations, in Africa, Asia and Latin America, with large-scale, long-term and flexible funding – helping to drive systems change to achieve gender-equitable outcomes in health, education and economic opportunity.
