  • Adopting a two-generation approach by partnering with and investing in organizations and initiatives that address the needs of two generations, i.e. low-income single mothers and their children, simultaneously
  • Increasing women’s income and assets by partnering with and investing in organizations that demonstrate measurable impact in economic  change that empowers women
  • Influencing legislative and/or workplace policy change that improves the lives of Southern Arizona women and families in economics, safety, health and leadership.
