Propitious Patron


Your support provides essential training for as many as 120 gender-based violence service providers in the Denver Metro area and beyond. They will learn new and emerging approaches to effectively intervene and prevent domestic and sexual violence. Previous trainings have included strategies to gain economic self-sufficiency, trauma informed police response, abuse in LGBT relationships, trafficking of children and youth, and much, much more.

Benevolent Benefactor


Although gender-based violence advocates (many of whom are survivors themselves) work tirelessly for victims, few have the money to advance their careers through education. Your $3,000 donation provides an academic scholarship to a dedicated advocate from anywhere across the globe, so that they may complete one semester in the Program on Gender-Based Violence.

Altruistic Ally


The introduction of violence prevention training for young people introduces new ways of thinking for children and youth but can only really take hold when the adults around them reinforce those messages. A $500 gift would fund four hours of training for the entire staff of a K-12 school committed to creating a trauma informed environment in which children can learn.

Fundamental Friend


Children who witness or experience gender-based violence are at greater risk of impeded brain development; suicide; anxiety and depression; alcohol and drug abuse; poor school performance; teen pregnancy; and use of violence as an adult (Harris et al., 2007). A donation of $100 would fund the supplies needed to conduct 10 individual school-based counseling sessions with a child who has witnessed or experienced domestic or sexual violence.
