Domestic Violence Funding
As part of our Speak Out Against Domestic Violence initiative, the Avon Foundation for Women provides domestic violence funding to build awareness, educate, and improve prevention and direct service programs.
Through 2013, we have provided nearly $38 million to programs like the Global Believe Fund, communications and awareness events, and global partnerships.
