NoVo Foundation is dedicated to catalyzing a transformation in global society, moving from a culture of domination to one of equality and partnership. They support the development of capacities in people—individually and collectively—to help create a caring and balanced world. They envision a world capable of reversing the old paradigm predicated on hierarchy, violence, and the subordination of girls and women.
They structure their grant-making around initiatives, rather than by program areas. These initiatives are varied in form, but all reflect our commitment to building authentic partnerships with grantees and other funders, and to taking calculated risks. They invest in a set of well-defined strategic initiatives, with non-profit and funder-partners, in ways that work to accomplish goals towards a larger vision.
