In addition to funding breast cancer and domestic violence prevention programs, the Avon Foundation for Women gives back to Avon representatives and their families through its Avon Global Scholarship Program. This year, the foundation awarded $210,000 in scholarships to the children and grandchildren of top Avon sellers.
“With this initiative, we are not only able to support our Representatives’ families but we are also able to further their education, which makes the Global Scholarship Program one of my favorite incentives,” Andrea Slater, Avon General Manager Western Europe, said in a statement. “We provide our Representatives with many rewards and recognition throughout the year, but this one is very special.”
The Global Scholarship Program launched in 2011 to help representatives and their families pursue higher education. Each year, the program has awarded 100 scholarships to children and grandchildren of the company’s President’s Club members. The foundation also offers Avon Representative Scholarships to its independent sellers. To date, the nonprofit has awarded more than $5 million in scholarship funds.
