Avon has the unique ability to educate and mobilize people worldwide on issues that are of vital importance to women. That’s why supporting women’s causes globally is at our core as a company.
Our focus areas are breast cancer education and ending violence against women. In these areas, we aim to accelerate progress, accountability, and discovery, while also reducing the social stigma that sometimes keeps these issues hidden. We take a woman-centric approach on projects to break traditional barriers and empower women to build a better future by taking control of their well-being. We do this, in conjunction with the Avon Foundation for Women (“Avon Foundation”), through Avon fundraising events and sales of special products in our markets around the world, educational programming and making grants to NGOs and medical institutions.
Safer, Sounder, Better Lives. For over 60 years, the Avon Foundation for Women has been a driving force behind charitable, scientific, educational and humanitarian work that improves the lives of women and their families.
Our efforts to eradicate breast cancer and to end violence against women worldwide have helped move these issues out of the shadows and into the public dialogue. And as attitudes continue to change – from fear and isolation to knowledge, action, and empowerment – so do the lives of countless women everywhere.

Avon has been a great role model with women for decades! I wonder when the first Avon Representative started this did she know she would be empowering women worldwide. I am proud to be apart of this. Never did I think that when I joined Avon that I would be playing a role in this. It is nice to know we are making a change for the better. YOU can be a part of this too!
One day in my lifetime I hope to see the cure for Breast Cancer. Unfortunately, I know people that have survived and some that have not. We need to keep pushing this issue. As of this writing, Avon has teamed up with Making Strides. this has helped change things for local Avon Representatives that wanted to participate more. All year long Avon has special merchandise that changes with the season to help support. You can shop online for these items or ask your Avon Representative about them.
