Celebrating IWFF

Nov 09, 2023

Over the past few weeks, we have been reflecting on the first four years of the Indigenous Women’s Flow Fund (IWFF) and have been celebrating its success, stories, and vitality. We’ve heard how so many of you are inspired by this work and how motivated you are to take that inspiration into action. To continue the celebration, we want to make sure you have two key resources at your fingertips to share with your friends and networks:

Through these celebrations we are reminded that together we are reshaping how philanthropy works and truly changing who has power over resources. We are so grateful to be doing this work with you! 

If you feel moved to donate, please click below. Please make sure to put “Kindle Project Fund – IWFF” in the recipient fund box. Thank you!

The Kindle Project Fund is administered by the Amalgamated Foundation, an independent nonprofit public charity. In addition to administering Combined Impact Funds like the Kindle Project Fund, the Foundation also offers Advance Change Funds, donor advised funds uniquely committed to social change. Reflecting their shared commitment to positive social change, Amalgamated Foundation receives charitable contributions from and maintains service agreements with Amalgamated Bank but is not a program or activity of Amalgamated Bank.

Variance power:

All gifts and grants to projects are subject to the Amalgamated Foundation’s authority to vary the terms of the gift. As stated in Article III, Section 1 (B) (4) of the Bylaws, the Foundation adheres to Treasury Regulation 1.170A-9(e)(11)(v)(B)(1), commonly known as Variance Power. This allows the Foundation to “modify any restriction or condition on the distribution of funds for any specified charitable purposes or to specified charitable purposes or to specified agencies if, in the sole judgment of the governing body (without the necessity of the approval of any participating trustee, custodian, or agent), such restriction or condition becomes, in effect, unnecessary, incapable of fulfillment, or inconsistent with the charitable needs of the community or area served.”
