The mission of the 2x4 foundation is to make a positive difference in the lives of women in this country. By supporting organizations providing essential services, positive tangible impacts can be demonstrated. Through 2x4, donors will have the opportunity to invest across a wide range of women’s causes. Additionally, the founders are covering all administrative costs for the first year, allowing every dollar donated to go directly to the service-providing nonprofits. After the first year, 2x4 intends to cap administrative costs at 15% of money donated, significantly lower than most nonprofits.
Nikki Silver and Emily Won have brought 35 years of career success, activism and friendship to the creation of 2x4. Having met at the University of Pennsylvania and going on to careers in entertainment and law, Nikki and Emily believe that now is the time to use their strengths and talents to make a difference in the lives of women in America. Together, they have amassed a network of women who are eager to be involved.
