International Women's Day

The first International Women's Day (IWD) was held in 1911, and it’s observed every year on March 8th. It celebrates the social, political and economic achievements of women while focusing global attention on areas requiring further action. Celebrated in over 100 countries, IWD is currently a national holiday in 35 countries. All of March is Women’s History Month.

Our Mission 

Indiegogo was launched in 2008 with the mission to democratize funding worldwide and empower anyone in the world with the opportunity to fund what matters to them without anything standing in the way. Six years later, we're the largest global crowdfunding platform and haven't lost sight of this strong vision and these core values that move our culture forward everyday.

As an open platform, we see new campaigns everyday--from creative to entrepreneurial to cause-related. These campaigners are breaking down traditional barriers and are collectively changing the world for the better. We believe that empowering women is one of the most important ways that our campaigners are making this happen and so far, there have been incredible results.

In fact, we've found that about 47% of campaigns that reach their funding goals on Indiegogo are run by women. To put that into perspective, that number is nearly 4 times higher than the number of female-owned businesses that receive venture capital. We think that's pretty incredible. It's becoming clear that crowdfunding is playing a crucial role in supporting women with the tools to turn their dreams into reality and we couldn't be more proud to be a part of it. 

How to Participate

Create a campaign that empowers women using this link by March 2nd and that runs through at least 3/12. It can be for an individual (mother, sister, daughter, friend,  mentor), non-profit, organization, or company. We'll match $1 for every $25 raised on 3/3 and 3/8 for qualified campaigns. 

If you’ve already launched an existing campaign that qualifies as an International Women’s Week campaign, please fill out this form to have it added to the International Women's Week page.
