Celebrate Mothers. Celebrate Activists.


This Mother’s Day, we invite you to honor a special mom in your life by supporting courageous women’s rights activists worldwide.

Instead of more flowers or chocolates, celebrate her by making a gift to Urgent Action Fund today. Your donation will go directly to support grassroots women activists around the world when they need it most.

Our goal is to raise $5,000 to provide rapid support – within 72 hours – to a women’s rights activist when she comes under threat, or when an opportunity arises to advance gender equality. Will you join us?

Here are 3 simple steps can take right now to raise awareness and support for women on the frontlines of justice and equality.

  1. Make a donation!  Gifts of all sizes – $10, $25, $50 – will be matched 1:1, up to $2,500, and go directly to support a women’s rights activist at precisely the moment when she needs it most. Click here to make a donation today.
