Purple Purse Challenge

October 02, 2017 - October 31, 2017
All Day

First Step has been selected to participate in the 2017 Allstate Foundation Purple Purse Challenge. The Allstate Foundation created the Purple Purse Challenge to help domestic violence survivors have the financial freedom to break free and stay free from their abusive relationship. The Challenge is a fundraising campaign launched by The Allstate Foundation where charities benefiting domestic violence survivors compete to raise the most money!

The excitement begins on Monday, October 2nd at 12:00pm EST and runs through Tuesday, October 31st at 1:59pm EST. A total of $325,000 will be given away to organizations participating in the Challenge. The organization that raises the most will receive a $100,000 donation from The Allstate Foundation. Second through fifth place will also receive large cash donations ranging from $15,000-$50,000. First Step is ready to raise as much money as possible so we can win the $100,000 grand prize donation! 

How You Can Help:

We hope you will consider joining our team as a fundraiser. Your personal networks are powerful! By reaching out to family, friends and colleges you can help First Step make an even bigger impact in our communities and help to end domestic violence.

It takes less than five minutes to set up a fundraiser. All you have to do is Go Here and click ‘Fundraise for This Campaign.

Leaving an abusive partner or spouse is complicated. Victims are often isolated and financially dependent on their abusers. Hard to imagine?  Experience it for yourself here. Every donation makes a difference, no matter how big or small, and will help us get one step closer to creating peaceful families and safe communities.
