Women’s Foundation of California: Relief and Resilience Fund Fund
About This Fund
Governor Gavin Newsom and First Partner Jennifer Siebel Newsom announced a series of new initiatives to support victims of domestic violence amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. The Women’s Foundation California has committed to working with the state to raise private funds that support domestic violence organizations and, in the longer-term, strengthens organizations centering on gender in California’s economic recovery plan.
This first-of-its kind fund will bolster the immediate and direct services needed to provide relief while also advancing the kind of meaningful policy shifts that Women’s Foundation California is known for – policies that support resilience and equity across racial, economic, and gender lines. Relief and Resilience Fund has to date raised $3 million, including seed funding from Blue Shield of California Foundation, and early partnerships with Levi Strauss Foundation and Stuart Foundation.
