Empowering Anglican Women Across the World

The Global Women’s Fund of New York seeks to effect positive societal change by educating Anglican women for the transformation of  themselves, their families, their local communities, and the world.

In 2004, the Rt. Rev. Catherine S. Roskam founded The Global Women’s Fund of New York in response to a global need to empower women and promote gender equality. Now in its thirteen year, the GWF has supported the higher education of 41 Anglican women and provided grants for 12 seminars that have lifted Anglican women and girls into leadership. Recipients have pursued studies in diverse fields and live in Africa, Asia, the Middle East, and the Americas. 

To honor the ideas and initiatives of its founder, the GWF established, in 2017, the “Bishop Catherine S. Roskam Scholarship” specifically to support seminarians or ordained women pursuing advanced theological education.

“Sometimes the ripples move out from an empowered life of an educated woman in a way far too significant to measure easily.  The empowerment of one woman can be the pivotal point on which generations may turn.”  

The Rt. Rev. Catherine S. Roskam, Bishop Suffragan (Retired), Episcopal Diocese of New York
