Foundation Funding to Address Domestic Violence in California

The emotional, physical, and mental health consequences of domestic violence are numerous and ripple not only through generations of families directly impacted, but through communities and society overall. Programs and policies that enable survivors and their families to access services and escape violence are critical to breaking the cycle of violence for future generations. Education and prevention are increasingly important to promote healthy relationships. Eliminating domestic violence in California will require partnership and collaboration among leaders, advocates, and practitioners from local and state government, community organizations, and organized philanthropy. To enable this work, Blue Shield of California Foundation commissioned the Foundation Center to prepare this first-ever examination of the role of U.S. foundations in addressing domestic violence-related issues in California.
