We are happy to be a part of the Allstate Foundation’s Purple Purse Challenge, an exciting fundraising opportunity helping to support life-changing programs like the Shelter for Help in Emergency while drawing attention to issues surrounding domestic violence and financial abuse, a common barrier to a victim’s ability to escape their abuser.

October 2 – 31, 2018

The Purple Purse Challenge brings together non-profits dedicated to helping domestic violence victims for a friendly competition to see who can raise the most funds for their program. The top 3 fundraisers in each division (based on budget and size) are awarded grand prizes up to $100,000 OVER what they’ve already raised. Last year with the support of over 100 generous donors, the Shelter for Help in Emergency was able to raise over $17,000 and place 8th in the nation for Division 2 non-profits.

Stay tuned on our website and our Facebook page for more information about Purple Purse and how you can help us place even higher this year by becoming a fundraiser for the Shelter. The top fundraiser for the Shelter will be awarded a custom-designed purse from Serena Williams!
