The Friends of the Contra Costa Commission for Women

The Friends of the Contra Costa Commission for Women, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, was formed in May of 2003. Since the Contra Costa Commission for Women no longer received funding or staff from Contra Costa County, The Friends felt it imperative to provide volunteer and financial support to the work of the Women’s Commission. The Friends are charged with helping to implement the mission of economic and social welfare for women and their families. The Friends group provides support for programs undertaken by the Women’s Commission to improve the quality of life for women and girls in Contra Costa County.

The Friends of the Contra Costa Commission partners with the Contra Costa Commission for Women in presenting the Women’s Hall of Fame annually or bi-annually. The March event occurs during Women’s History Month, and recognizes outstanding women living and/or working in Contra Costa County.

In addition, the Friends of the Contra Costa Commission for Women, through the Women’s Commission, will provide funding to community-based organizations and individuals for programs or projects which further the mission of the Women’s Commission, and improve the lives of Contra Costa women and girls, now and in the future.
