OUR MISSION

The Queen’s Fund encourages women to increase their self-worth, skills and knowledge through:

• Short-term emergency relief to alleviate immediate financial crises with rent, medical and household expenses

• Educational grants to increase access to educational opportunities

• Grants which give women a chance to rebuild their lives and nurture their children

OUR IMPACT

We work with social workers, who are in the best position to determine how to help the woman in need. They continue to support her after our emergency relief has been provided to ensure that she gets her life back on track. Our research shows our grants are a targeted and valuable tool for welfare agencies, particularly because we can react quickly to urgent requests.
