Mission and Work

Mission

The mission of The Atlanta Women's Foundation is to be a catalyst for change in the lives of women and girls.

Grantmaking

$1.0m annual program spend • Awf's goal is to support organizations that improve the lives of economically vulnerable women and girls in clayton, cobb, dekalb, fulton and gwinnett counties. Awf has an invitation only grantmaking selection process to make sure that allocated funds are used by organizations that are accountable and well-managed. A signed grant contract requires grantees to provide six-month and year end reports. Additionally, a meeting is convened to provide an opportunity for feedback and proactive planning.

Women on Board

$6.3k annual program spend • Created in 2000, women on board is a training program that advances the inclusion of women as leaders by training them in nonprofit board governance and then connecting them with nonprofit boards. Since its inception, the program has trained over 3,500 women in board governance and leadership skills and connected hundreds of these women with nonprofit boards. Women on board was designed to increase the participation and diversity of women serving on nonprofit boards in metro Atlanta.

Public Policy

$25k annual program spend • The Georgia budget and policy institute provides training and technical assistance to awf's grantees, specifically the women's pathways to success and economic empowerment cohorts. Gpbi will also produce a ground-breaking, first-of-its kind analysis on the state of women and girls in Georgia for The Atlanta Women's Foundation, with a focus on awf's metro Atlanta service area. The report will align with awf's focus areas including an exploration of baseline data on economic and poverty indicators for women and girls, as well as education, asset building, child care, health care with an emphasis on mental health employment, wages and job training. The mission of the Georgia budget and policy institute is to seek to build a more prosperous Georgia.
