Friends of the Alexandria Commission for Women

About the Friends of the Commission

The Friends of the Alexandria Commission for Women was established in 2000 as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.

The purpose of the Friends is to raise and distribute funds, for the benefit and support of the Commission's educational, social, and cultural programs.

Funds raised may be designated for general needs or specific programs or areas. Ongoing efforts primarily support the Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault Programs, and can include:

  • Sponsoring awareness events;
  • Meeting supplemental needs of the battered women's shelter;
  • Maintaining 24-hour hotlines and support groups.

The Friends are open to any individual or organization concered about the ongoing welfare of Alexandria's women and girls. We welcome your support.
