Speak Out Against Domestic Violence
In 2014 the Avon Foundation Speak Out Against Domestic Violence program will build upon and expand existing Avon Foundation-funded projects across the U.S. in the following areas: financial empowerment; campus sexual assault and dating abuse prevention; bystander intervention strategies; and direct services. Please periodically check this site for 2014 Request for Proposals (RFP). The Avon Foundation will also consider proposals for innovative programs that present good opportunities to create or build upon model programs which can easily be adapted and replicated. If you believe you have an innovative model program please email a brief summary to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note we may not be able to quickly respond to all inquiries due to the high volume of requests we receive, and limited staff/budget resources.
