About Us

Our History

lift Women’s Foundation is an independent philanthropic not for profit organization. We were established by Royal Neighbors of America in 2002, as the Royal Neighbors Foundation, as a 501(c)(3) public charity to provide financial education and support causes that empower women and their families.

Today, the foundation is active with a new Purpose, Mission and Vision that is still aligned with the Royal Neighbors of America’s mission of “insuring lives, supporting women, and serving communities.” At the start of 2022, 20 years since the launch, the foundation took on a new mission, Loans Inspire Futures Together. Focusing on financial equity for women, lift Women’s Foundation is sponsoring microloans, investing capital to inspire financial independence.
