Who We Are

The Atlanta Women’s Foundation plays an essential role in helping more women and girls to live safe, economically self-sufficient, and vibrant lives. When you invest through AWF, your impact for women and girls goes further—creating stronger, more stable families and communities for everyone.


What We Do

As a catalyst for change in the lives of women and girls, we raise funds for grantmaking through our collective impact model that amplifies the work of strategic nonprofits serving the metro Atlanta area. In addition to our role as a funder, we serve as an educator and a connector. As an educator, we provide leadership and philanthropic training and conduct research into the challenges faced by women and girls. As a connector, we bring people together through events and experiences designed to empower attendees, expand our impact, and champion grant recipients.

What You Can Do

You can help break barriers and build women in our community. Join our movement to ensure that all women and girls in Atlanta live safe and successful lives. From events, donor societies, leadership programs and more, there are several ways you can transform the lives of women and girls.
