The Inspire Atlanta Program develops women personally, professionally, and philanthropically.
Over the course of the five-month initiative, Inspire Atlanta participants explore their core values, network with fellow community leaders, develop a broader understanding of the issues Atlanta’s women and girls face and garner support for these issues through a fundraising campaign.
As the only public foundation in Georgia dedicated solely to women and girls, The Atlanta Women’s Foundation’s mission is to be a catalyst for change in the lives of women and girls. We strive to ensure that all women and girls in metro Atlanta live safe, economically self-sufficient, successful lives.
Less than 2% of charitable giving in the United States goes to women and girls. Social problems affect women and girls in unique ways—biologically, psychologically, and economically—so programs designed to deal with these problems must acknowledge, honor, and reflect these factors. AWF examines everything it does through a gender lens. We are always asking, “Was this program designed with women and girls in mind?” AWF sees what works (and what doesn’t) and then identifies and funds the organizations and programs with the greatest impact.
When you invest AWF, you invest in stronger, more stable families and communities. Invest in women and girls, and you invest a society that works—for everyone.
Your financial support is put to work through AWF's strategic grantmaking to break the cycle of poverty for women and girls in our community.
AWF supports organizations that improve the lives of economically vulnerable women and girls in Clayton, Cobb, DeKalb, Fulton, and Gwinnett counties.
The absence of economic self-sufficiency is at the heart of critical issues faced by women and girls in our community. Access to resources plays a major role in determining the choices women and girls make. AWF supports organizations that lift women and girls up and out of poverty by increasing their access to services and opportunities for advancement.
One of the ways we accomplish this is through strategic grantmaking. AWF awards local, grassroots nonprofit organizations financial grants to help them deliver critical services to low-income women and girls. Our areas of focus are mental and physical health services, education, and life skills.
