Planned Giving

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.

Our vision is one where...

  • communities are free from violence

  • victims of abuse are heard

  • families are supported as they heal & rebuild

  • and resources sufficiently address the need for safety

It IS Possible.
