A CATALYST FOR CHANGE IN THE LIVES OF WOMEN AND GIRLS.

COVID-19 Grantee Partner Emergency Fund

AWF has created an emergency fund for our grantee partners. As we learn more on the immediate and extended needs of women and girls in the community, we will use these funds to help achieve the greatest impact and address the greatest needs.

Your contributions will be distributed to vetted organizations with a proven track record of assisting women and girls in need.

The needs of women and girls in Atlanta continue, and so will we with your help and steadfast support. Thank you.
