Launching Our Crowdfunding Campaign!
Is there hope for a new world order of equal privilege for men and women? This time is inspiring many to take action. Kota's partner organizations have already been working for a while in different ways to increase gender equality and bring opportunities for girls and women. In the long term - but not too distant future - we will establish in New York City a World Center for Women; a hub and incubator for women-focused nonprofits and women social entrepreneurs. Help us get to the next stage in the process!
Thank you to our donors so far:
Tatiana Kovalev, Zoya Samoylova, Mari Simonen, Anonymous, Heather Evans, Cheryl Evans, Amanda Nussbaum, Carol Luong, Claire Quillin

What is Kota?
The Kota Alliance is a umbrella organization elevating collaboration across borders for women-centered nonprofits, NGOs, social enterprises and entrepreneurs, businesses and startups that share the like-minded goal of improving gender equality and supporting women. Currently working out of the Centre for Social Innovation (CSI), The Kota Alliance long term goal is to be working independently out of a World Center for Women via a social enterprise model. About half of nonprofits identify “long-term financial sustainability” as their greatest challenge. By joining Kota at the Women's Lab at CSI, our members benefit from our group discount for coworking and event space. Additionally, those who join our community, receive tangible fiscal, physical, and programmatic support, as well as the opportunity to collaboration across organizations.
