Avon Presents $500K Grant To U.S. Dept of State




Reese Witherspoon, Avon global ambassador and honorary chairperson of the Avon Foundation, and Andrea Jung, Avon chairman and chief executive officer, met with Secretary Hillary Rodham Clinton and First Lady Michelle Obama at the International Women of Courage Awards.

The Avon Foundation for Women presented a $500,000 grant to the U.S. Department of State Secretary’s Fund for Global Women’s Leadership to accelerate the global movement to end violence against women. Andrea Jung, Avon chairman and chief executive officer, and Reese Witherspoon, Avon global ambassador and honorary chairperson of the Avon Foundation, made the announcement at the International Women of Courage Awards, which was hosted by Secretary Hillary Rodham Clinton at the U.S. Department of State.

The U.S. Department of State will use the grant to fund innovative and breakthrough programs developed by international non-government organizations for the purpose of ending violence against women.

“We are tremendously privileged to partner with the U.S. Department of State, and share in their resolve to end violence against women. As the company for women, we are equally committed to providing women with an economic opportunity as we are serving as a change agent for critical issues that face women worldwide,” said Jung.

To date, Avon global philanthropy has committed more than $16 million to end violence against women.

The Avon Foundation for Women, along with Vital Voices, also collaborated with the U.S. Department of State to host a three-day conference, The Global Partnership to End Violence Against Women in Washington, D.C., from March 9-11.
