Wellesley Centers for Women research-and-action initiatives are funded by federal, state, and local government agencies, private foundations, the Centers’ endowment (managed by Wellesley College), and the generosity of individual donors committed to social change; WCW also receives essential infrastructure and governance support from Wellesley College, including our facilities. Gifts from individuals provide essential funding that ensures we have resources to disseminate our findings and to pilot groundbreaking research initiatives and action programs; such activities are not often funded through grants and contracts.
