Recently, The Women’s Fund awarded the Assistance League of Southeastern Michigan (ALSM) a $3000 grant for their Assault Survivor Kits Program. The kits are provided to survivors of abuse, sexual assault, and domestic violence whose clothing is destroyed by the perpetrator or retained by police for forensic evidence. The Women’s Fund has supported ALSM with yearly grants since 2007, awarding over $26,000 for assault survival kits.

Since 2001, The Womens Fund has donated more than $575,000 to organizations helping women. The fund is a permanently endowed fund owned and administered by the Community Foundation of Greater Rochester. Through grant-making, the fund provides ongoing and future support for programs to aid women while preserving and managing its donations in perpetuity by spending only the fund’s income and annual earnings.
