Maverick Collective Helps Link Funders To Projects To Improve Women’s Health Worldwide

NPR: New Charity Invites Female Millionaires To Donate — And Get Involved
“…According to a 2014 report from the United Nations Population Fund, ‘less than two cents [of] every international development dollar is spent on an adolescent girl.’ The Maverick Collective hopes to change that breakdown. It’s a philanthropic organization that was publicly launched this week at the Women Deliver conference in Copenhagen. Its 14 members, all women, have each contributed at least $1 million to fund a specific project in the developing world that tackles a women’s health issue: domestic violence, maternal health, cervical cancer. The goal is to come up with projects that get good results, then build them up to a bigger scale…” (Chhabra, 5/19).
