Planned Giving


Create a legacy that will save lives.

For far too long, domestic violence has affected our homes and communities. Over the past 40 years, Women Against Abuse has served as a beacon of hope, launching innovative programs, raising awareness about domestic violence, and working to create lasting change. We have done it with the support of donors like you, who understand the very real need for our mission. 

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.

Our vision is one where communities are free from violence…

…where victims of abuse are heard      

…where families are supported as they heal and rebuild 

…and where resources sufficiently address the need for safety
