I would like to make a gift that provides essential support for the Ms. Foundation for Women's grant-making programs.

About the Gloria Awards

The Gloria Awards is the Ms. Foundation for Women's largest annual event, celebrating activists, innovators, and philanthropists who ignite policy and culture change on behalf of women and their communities nationwide. Named after Ms. Foundation Co-Founder Gloria Steinem, the event pays tribute to the remarkable achievements of feminists whose courage and leadership move us toward our shared vision of a just and inclusive democracy.

Our 2020 Gloria Awards theme-Roaring Then. Roaring Now.-reflects the Ms. Foundation's confidence in our legacy as the first national women's foundation and our readiness for all that lies ahead. While our theme references the Roaring '20s, a period of rebellion, modernization, freedom and autonomy that brought about the 19th Amendment and created a constitutional right to suffrage for women, it also speaks of the 2020s, when women and girls are escalating the fight for full political, social, and economic rights.

Cocktail Reception: 6pm | Dinner: 7pm | After Party: 9:30pm
