The Arizona Women’s Partnership, Inc. has awarded over $380,000 in grants since its formation in 2002, the press release states.

The amount awarded annually is dependent upon the success of fundraising efforts. This year the Violet M. Johnson Family Foundation contributed another $25,000 to the Arizona Women’s Partnership in honor of their maternal grandmother.

“We are grateful for this donation and for all of our generous supporters,” said Paula Cullison, Arizona Women’s Partnership president and founder, in the press release.

“This year we also had a $1,500 matching grant from Ralph and Roxanne Martin and a $1,000 donation from Les Dames d’Escoffier International – Phoenix Chapter.”
