Avon Foundation Offers Support to Assist Children Affected by Domestic Violence

Deadline: March 31, 2008

The Avon Foundation ( ) launched the Speak Out Against Domestic Violence program in 2004 to support domestic violence awareness, education, direct services, and prevention programs. As part of the Speak Out program, the foundation launched the national Not Seen, Not Heard: Helping Children of Domestic Violence program in 2005 to assist the children of domestic violence.

The Avon Foundation is seeking proposals from nonprofit 501(c)(3) organizations that assist children who have been exposed to or are victims of domestic violence. For 2008, the foundation will focus on the following strategic priority: innovative coordinated-response models between domestic violence organizations and organizations that assist child victims of abuse and/or children witnesses of domestic violence.

Proposals will be accepted from domestic violence organizations that have demonstrated experience assisting domestic violence victims and that are developing or expanding a model of collaboration to include agencies that assist child victims of abuse and/or children witnesses to domestic violence in order to provide therapeutic services to the children; offer services to both the children and the non-offending adult caregiver, including family support and parent education; are willing to utilize a licensed provider of counseling and specific modalities of treat- ment and have linkages with at least one other government and one other nonprofit organization; and are willing to serve as a national model.

Grant amounts range from $10,000 to $50,000 each, depending on the size, scope, and impact of the program proposed. Grants are non-renewable. However, an organization may submit a new proposal the following year for continued funding. To be considered for funding, applicants must submit a proposal before April 1, 2008.
