Washington Area Women's Foundation: Stand Together Fund

Host Organization: Washington Area Women's Foundationmdi-circle-small Washington, DC, United States mdi-circle-small


Washington Area Women’s Foundation understands the significant stress we are collectively experiencing as a result of COVID-19, and we are deeply grateful for the way in which our community has stepped up to respond to this unprecedented public health crisis. To that end, we have identified two issue areas where there are critical gaps in funding and yet the need is extraordinary—the safety of women experiencing violence, and the stability of frontline care workers.

The Stand Together Fund will support:

• Critical services for women who have experienced violence and abuse, such as expanded hotline capacity and telehealth visits.

• Financial assistance for the caregiving workforce and organizations supporting them.

• Advocacy to ensure that women and girls of color are front and center in recovery discussions.
