The Avon Foundation provides grants to organizations and institutions, predominantly 501(c)(3) or equivalent, in the following areas: breast cancer, domestic violence and emergency disaster relief. In 2005, the Avon Foundation celebrated 50 years of improving the lives of women and families.

Mission: To expand access to affordable, quality healthcare for underserved individuals and communities and to promote fundamental improvements in the health status of the people of California. The California HealthCare Foundation is an independent philanthropy committed to improving the way health care is delivered and financed in California. By promoting innovations in care and broader access to information, their goal is to ensure that all Californians can get the care they need, when they need it, at a price they can afford.
