Create a legacy that will save lives

For far too long, domestic violence has affected our homes and communities. Your generosity in the form of a planned gift allows us to meet the needs of individual survivors and families in crisis. It ensures that Women Against Abuse has the financial support to innovate, grow and lead for years to come, and reduces dependency on fluctuating government support. In short, it creates lasting change for generations to come.

View our new 1976 Legacy Society video to learn why Myra and Allan made a planned gift to Women Against Abuse.
