FUTURES incorporated in California in 1989 as a nonprofit public benefit corporation. We pioneer new strategies to end violence against women and children in the United States and around the world, because everyone has the right to live free of violence. We’ve consistently received the highest four-star rating from Charity Navigator, a trusted guide for intelligent giving.
We receive support from private foundations, government, corporations, and individual donors allowing for groundbreaking work. Please refer to the graphs below for our activities in 2018.
With a generous $7.5M Matching Grant from The Ford Foundation, FUTURES established an endowment to support current and future programs. Authorized by the Board of Directors, the Investment Advisory Committee oversees and monitors endowment investment funds in accordance with the Investment Policy.
