We were one of 100 domestic violence agencies to receive a grant from The Mary Kay Foundation. We received the gift of $20,000 that we’ll be contributing to our endowment fund.
Each year The Mary Kay Foundation awards grants to agencies across the country in an effort to help eliminate domestic violence by providing women and children a sanctuary where they can discover dignity and empowerment. To date, The Mary Kay Foundation as awarded $80 million to women’s shelters and domestic violence service providers, as well as cancer research programs throughout the United States.
A huge thank you to Foundation Board Member, Kristie Martin who submitted the application for the grant and to past Foundation Board Member and our favorite Mary Kay consultant, Heidi Zeller-Crawford.
