Response to Questions Regarding Planned Parenthood
January 30, 2017 - We are proud to be known as “the company for women,” and of our long-standing tradition of supporting causes that matter most to women. Avon’s philanthropy focuses on two core areas: eradicating breast cancer and ending violence against women. The Avon Foundation for Women and the Avon Breast Cancer Crusade award grants to support those causes and list the grants on the Avon Foundation website. Planned Parenthood is not listed because it has not received any direct donations or grants. We do believe in supporting our Associates in their personal philanthropic efforts, and therefore, Avon does offer an employee matching program in which U.S.-based Associates can choose to support 501(c)(3) organizations of their choice, which the Avon Foundation will match.
