Give Your Support

Your Investment in AWF

  • Stringent grantmaking selection and monitoring processes assure that your money is used wisely. Only programs that show the greatest opportunity for long-term systemic change receive funding from AWF.
  • When AWF makes a grant, the grantee partner often gets greater support from other funders. Donors know that an endorsement from AWF gives their programs and organizations added credibility.
  • In addition to local grantmaking, AWF produces programs, builds awareness and supports public policy in order to leverage community resources to break the cycle of generational poverty.
