Host a Community Benefit Event for SafePlace

You can make an impact in survivors’ lives by raising funds for SafePlace programs and services.

Whether you are an individual, a business owner, or member of a community group, we’d love to discuss ways you can help support survivors.  Hosting an event is a great way for you as a host to raise awareness about SafePlace while raising funds.  Plus, you are letting the community know that you support the important work that we do.  We’d love it if you decided to gather your friends together for a dinner party, wine tasting, business promotion, or participate in a sporting event in support of SafePlace.  Some promotions are ongoing.  Let your imagination run wild!  See examples of some of our supporters’ fundraisers below.
