The Atlanta Women’s Foundation’s mission is to be a catalyst for change in the lives of women and girls and to eliminate generational poverty. AWF does this by raising money to support nonprofit organizations in Clayton, Cobb, DeKalb, Fulton and Gwinnett counties through:
• Targeted monetary grants that stem from annual fund raising results
• Technical assistance
• Sharing of research
• Nonprofit board leadership training
• Community education
• Thought leadership
In 2012, AWF commissioned and published a significant research study delving into the causes of generational poverty in Atlanta and will be using that information to help its grantees, nonprofit partners and the community work more effectively to help all women and girls lead lives filled with possibility and hope. The organization has recently completed a new strategic framework that will drive its activities in the coming years, and this framework is based on the research results.
The Atlanta Women’s Foundation has 7 full time employees, an annual budget of $1.5 million (fiscal year July 1-June 30), and is governed by a 23-member Board of Directors.

The successful candidate will be a proven fund-raiser, an excellent internal and external communicator, and an open and inclusive leader.
