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 2012, we have provided more than $33 million to programs like the Global Believe Fund, communications and awareness events, and global partnerships.
On March 7, Avon Foundation for Women Ambassador Salma Hayek Pinault announced the winners of the second Avon Communications Awards: Speaking Out About Violence Against Women. Five awards were presented at the United Nations Headquarters, during the 57th session of the Commission on the Status of Women.
Established in 2009, the Avon Global Center for Women and Justice at Cornell Law School works with judges, legal professionals, and governmental and non-governmental organizations to improve access to justice for victims of gender violence.
