Research shows that the social investment in a womans life reduces poverty, raises productivity and accelerates economic growth.
A Womans Work is a donor advised fund that provides assistance to women whose needs may encompass: mortgage payments, rent, utilities, daycare, auto-repair, and tuition.
1) Must live or work within School District #9 for at least 45 days
2) Be referred by a local non-profit, school, church or AWW Board Member. These agencies must give with the request the assurance that all other community funding avenues have been contacted and exhausted.
When AWW receives notice of a woman in crisis, the board is e-mailed immediately with only the request information and not the woman's identity (confidentiality is a priority). If the request is approved, the needed funds are delivered to the appropriate partner or vendor to satisfy the need.
Why is AWW special?
-Help is granted within 48 hours
- AWW only asks that the grant recipient performs an act of kindess to someone in the community within 60 days of being helped and report back to AWW.
We hope to make a difference in our community one heart at a time.
Thank you for your interest in A Womans Work.
