Leap to Success Receives $20,000 From Avon Foundation

avonnewspeakoutlogogifAvon Foundation for Women Program Awards $500,000 to fund Domestic Violence Organizations in the United States and Puerto Rico

The Avon Foundation for Women has awarded a $20,000 one-year grant to Leap to Success to provide leadership and employment-readiness training to victims of domestic violence. It is the second time that Leap to Success has received Avon Foundation funding to support its work on this critical issue. Leap to Success is one of 44 organizations across the United States this year to be granted funds for direct services through the Avon Foundation for Women Speak Out Against Domestic Violence program.

“We are proud that the Avon Foundation for Women has chosen to support our program. With these funds we will be able to provide Leap to Confidence classes for as many as 25 domestic violence survivors to help them regain confidence in themselves while becoming ready to re-enter the workforce,” said Dana Bristol-Smith, founder of Leap to Success.
