Aurora Women and Girls Foundation

The Aurora Women and Girls Foundation galvanizes resources to increase economic security, educational attainment, and leadership for women and girls in the Greater Hartford region. They envision strong, equitable communities in which all women and girls realize their potential and are full, valued, and sought-after participants — economically, politically, and socially. Aurora uses a focused gender and racial equity lens to:

  • engage individuals and institutions in philanthropy
  • develop and share cutting-edge research
  • direct grantmaking and capacity-building resources to nonprofits
  • convene and mobilize community partners for action

Their mission, vision, values and strategies support all women and girls inclusive of sexual orientation, gender identity, and gender expression.
