Working for a world where women and girls are able to achieve their full potential and pursue their dreams.
Even today, there are still many barriers that hinder the prospects of women and girls. The Women’s Foundation of Southern Arizona fosters equality and opportunity through support, advocacy and research. To help women and girls overcome economic, political, gender and social barriers, we encourage reform in the social climate, promote change in conventional attitudes and invest in organizations that strive for positive long-term changes.
As one of more than 160 women’s funds globally, the foundation promotes women’s leadership and philanthropy by raising, managing and granting money to meet the needs of women and girls. Learn more about the Women’s Foundation of Southern Arizona.
“How Much is Enough in Your County? The Self-Sufficiency Standard for Arizona 2012” describes how much income families of various sizes and compositions need to make ends meet without public or private assistance in each county of Arizona. WFSA commissioned this report to ensure the best tools are available to help Arizona families and individuals make progress toward real economic security.
