Ivanka Trump in Talks About Women’s Fund With World Bank, Sources Say

  • Discussions are in early stages and no structure is in place
  • Ivanka Trump wouldn’t be involved in soliciting funds

Ivanka Trump is in discussions with the World Bank about setting up a fund that would pool resources from G-20 countries to support female entrepreneurs, two people with knowledge of the matter said.

The project hasn’t been set up, and donors would need to agree on its structure, said officials from the World Bank and the White House, who spoke on condition of anonymity. The German government has taken a leading role in the effort, according to the officials. In addition to countries and foundations, corporations might be tapped for donations, a second World Bank official said.
