Knowing the issues and the facts puts us in a better position to act as catalysts for change. That’s why the Aurora Foundation commissioned the first comprehensive report assessing the condition and needs of women and girls in Greater Hartford. The details in the report inform Aurora’s grants program—and anyone working to improve conditions in our area.

The Aurora Foundation sprang into life to empower women and girls in Greater Hartford—and through them to empower their families and communities.
An undeniable ripple effect occurs when a woman attains economic stability and personal wellbeing. She doesn’t just benefit herself; she can better care for her family and contribute to her community.
Giving to the Aurora Foundation contributes to stronger and healthier communities in the Hartford area.
Traditional philanthropy does not meet the needs of women and girls. Yet women reinvest 90% of their earnings in their families. We know, therefore, that providing opportunity for a woman or girl creates a powerful agent of change for her entire community.
That’s why we started the Aurora Foundation: to unlock the potential in our communities. That’s why your contribution makes such a difference.
