As the “company for women,” Avon has the unique ability and commitment to educate and mobilize people on issues that are of vital importance to women. That’s why global philanthropy is at our core as a company.
Through our network of six million Avon Sales Representatives (“Representatives”) worldwide, we have a unique ability to educate and mobilize people on issues that are of vital importance to women. By combining the power of the individual and the collective power of our worldwide network of Representatives into one powerful philanthropic force, together Avon and the Avon Foundation for Women (“Avon Foundation”)—a U.S.-based 501(c)(3) public charity—are a global leader in philanthropy.
This unique partnership of corporate philanthropy and a public charity is focused on two core areas: eradicating breast cancer and ending violence against women. In 2016 Avon reached a proud milestone of donating $1 billion in global contributions to support causes that matter most to women.
