Mary’s Pence is a small organization with a big vision.

We want women in the Americas who live in poverty to have a say and a hand in how poverty can be alleviated and social equity achieved.

We fund women in North, Central and South America and the Caribbean.

We envision a world where empowered women and their communities flourish in solidarity and justice.
