Giving Tuesday 2016
MAKE A DIFFERENCE TO SURVIVORS AND CREATE CHANGE IN THE COURTS WHEN YOUR GIFT IS DOUBLED ON GIVING TUESDAY!
This year DV LEAP is participating in its 2nd annual Giving Tuesday campaign. A foundation partner has offered to match all the gifts we receive up to the amount of $5,000, guaranteeing that any gift we receive on Giving Tuesday (November 29, 2016) will be doubled—this ensures that we can help more survivors of domestic violence!
DV LEAP was founded with the belief that appellate advocacy can help individual clients and create lasting change for thousands of others. We support clients during critical times in their lives with our passionate and informed advocacy. At the same time, we have launched a movement towards system accountability by appealing unjust trial court decisions. We have always had a significant impact while operating with a lean budget, by leveraging the significant pro bono support we receive--and every dollar we receive makes a difference.
Follow us on social media throughout the day on Giving Tuesday and see how we're doing. There will be opportunities for us to win various prizes (such as most donations in a certain hour or during the day). Help spread the word and make a difference in the life of domestic violence survivors and help create the necessary change in the courts!
