Breaking Barriers, Building Women: Economic Empowerment Program focuses on higher education and asset building for low-income women in Clayton, Cobb, DeKalb, Fulton, and Gwinnett counties. Initial funding for the program allowed AWF to award a total of $1 million over two years to eight local nonprofit organizations.
AWF applies a Collective Impact Approach to its grantmaking. Program components include facilitated discussions to foster a safe environment for peer sharing; program evaluation technical assistance; individualized one-on-one consultation; workshops and trainings; and interactive convenings that allow nonprofits an opportunity to share their work and explore collaboration.
Due to the ongoing situation with COVID-19, funding for year three of the program will shift to meet the developing needs of AWF grantees and their clients.
AWF is grateful to The Coca-Cola Foundation and the Truist Foundation for their funding in support of a third year of the Breaking Barriers, Building Women: Economic Empowerment Program.
