Our Goal: To Advance the Economic Prosperity for Women and our Region
Thanks to our generous donors, we have invested over $3.4 million in the communities we serve, to fund innovative organizations and programs empowering women and girls. Our research, including the 2015 Report on the Impact of the Recession on Arizona’s Women and Children and the 2012 Self-Sufficiency Standard, provides statewide data to inform public policy decisions. We take a seat on diverse coalitions, providing resources to collaborative partners on a variety of issues affecting women and children.
