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.
The Avon Foundation for Women collaborated with Vital Voices and the U.S. Department of State in 2010 to create The Global Partnership to End Violence Against Women. This innovative public-private partnership is fostering the creation of cross-sector collaborations with the goal of reducing violence against women.
On March 7, 2013, 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.
