The Many Ways You Can Support the Maine Women's Fund
Safety First for Women Fund
During the COVID-19 pandemic, the SAFETY FIRST FOR WOMEN FUND will allow the Maine Women's Fund to shift resources and attention to two of the biggest needs facing women across Maine today: domestic violence and the needs of direct care workers. This is an emergency fund that will close at the end of May 2020, so grants can be quickly distributed to the members of the Maine Coalition to End Domestic Violence and the Maine Center on Aging. Help us raise $100,000 in emergency funding!
