New Funds Awarded to End Child Sexual Abuse

Last week, the Ms. Foundation for Women was pleased to announce $600,000 in grants as part of a groundbreaking partnership with the NoVo Foundation and individual donors to end child sexual abuse in the United States.

A total of 15 organizations were selected from an historic number of submissions -- over 250 -- and represent some of the most exciting advocacy being done in the movement to end child sexual abuse today.  The awardees -- representing local, state and national groups working in 14 states across the country -- include faith-based, arts, domestic violence and survivor-led groups as well as sexual assault coalitions and child abuse prevention organizations.

“The Ms. Foundation for Women is proud to announce this new round of grants to prevent child sexual abuse,” said Senior Program Officer Monique Hoeflinger.  “From working within Native American and religious communities, to advocating for new federal policies, to using art as a catalyst for social change, each group is pursuing innovative strategies to engage families, communities and policymakers to end child sexual abuse once and for all.”
