As we approach the end of Women’s History Month, we're reminded of the unfortunate fact that less than 2 percent of philanthropic support in the U.S. goes to the nearly 50,000 nonprofits serving girls and women. Here are 5 organizations we can support to help bust this statistic!

The Women’s Sports Foundation was established in 1974 to advance the lives of women and girls through sports and physical activity. Their mission is to enable all girls and women to reach their potential in sports and life by providing financial fuel to aspiring champion athletes. They fund groundbreaking research, educate, advocate, and help communities get girls active.
