Gender Justice receives groundbreaking $2 million gift from MacKenzie Scott’s Yield Giving Open Call

On March 19, Gender Justice received a transformational gift of $2 million from MacKenzie Scott’s Yield Giving Open Call, which awarded a cohort of community-led, community-focused organizations working with people and in places experiencing the greatest need in the United States. Among this cohort, Gender Justice was one of the highest-scoring organizations to receive an award. This is the largest one-time gift in Gender Justice’s history.

“With a conservative legal movement threatening our fundamental rights here in Minnesota, North Dakota, and across the United States, this gift could not come at a more crucial time. We are incredibly grateful and humbled by this recognition from Yield Giving and Lever for Change,” said Gender Justice Executive Director Megan Peterson.

“Building and sustaining a world free of gender barriers requires community organization, education, and changing the ways we talk and think about gender. This Open Call award helps us take our fight for justice and equity to the next level, continuing our work to dismantle the legal, structural, and cultural barriers that contribute to gender inequity.”
