The Mary Kay Foundation
dedicated to ending women's cancers and domestic abuse

The Mary Kay Foundation has just finished another successful year of helping women. We are proud to report that in 2014 we were able to fund:

  • 12 cancer research grants to respected medical doctors and medical scientists each receiving a $100,000 grant for a total of $1.2 million and
  • one hundred fifty domestic violence shelters nationwide each receiving a $20,000 grant totaling $3 million.

For a complete review of the Foundation’s past year, see our Event Highlights article, “The Mary Kay Foundation 2014 Accomplishments.”

To date, The Mary Kay Foundation has awarded more than $17.3 million to cancer researchers at accredited medical schools and schools of public health, and $37 million to shelters and programs addressing domestic violence prevention. Mary Kay Ash was committed to women’s causes, and she said, “I want women to have every single thing God intended us to have.” You can HELP NOW… with your donation as we uphold Mary Kay Ash’s legacy of love… to make a difference in the lives of women across the nation.
