Open Philanthropy recommended a grant of $500,000 to the National Council for Incarcerated and Formerly Incarcerated Women and Girls (National Council) to support regranting to promising leaders and projects consistent with its mission. The National Council is a network of women impacted by incarceration focused on ending the incarceration of women and girls—a fast-growing incarcerated population—through a mix of relationship building, research, leadership training, and advocacy work.

This follows our December 2019 support and falls within our focus area of criminal justice reform.
