Silicon Valley Gives Day 2016

Hello community members! We are excited to announce that W.O.M.A.N., Inc. was selected as apart of Silicon Valley Gives, a fundraising effort for non-profits throughout the bay, and we need your help to make it a success. SVGives is an online giving day that supports nonprofit organizations in San Mateo, Santa Clara, San Francisco and San Benito counties.

On May 3, W.O.M.A.N., Inc. will join together with hundreds of nonprofits to unite our community in the act of giving.

Leveraging investments from sponsors, the SVGives campaigns in 2014 and 2015 raised nearly $16 million from thousands of individuals to support charitable causes in our community.

About V-Day

V-Day is a global activist movement to end violence against women and girls that raises funds and awareness through benefit productions of Playwright/Founder Eve Ensler’s award winning play The Vagina Monologues and other artistic works. The V-Day movement has raised over $100 million; educated millions about the issue of violence against women and the efforts to end it; crafted international educational, media and PSA campaigns; reopened shelters; and funded over 13,000 community-based anti-violence programs and safe houses in Democratic Republic of Congo, Haiti, Kenya, South Dakota, Egypt, and Iraq. V-Day has received numerous acknowledgements and awards and is, one of the Top-Rated organizations on both Charity Navigator and Guidestar. V-Day’s most recent global campaign, ONE BILLION RISING, galvanized over one billion women and men on a global day of action towards ending violence against women and girls.

About The Beneficiaries

Oasis For Girls
Founded in ’99, the mission of Oasis For Girls is to partner with girls and young women of color from under-resourced communities in San Francisco to help them cultivate the skills, knowledge, and confidence to discover their dreams and build strong futures. Oasis For Girls focuses on low-income immigrant girls and girls of color, ages 14-17, in San Francisco. They strive to work with girls who are on the edge of risk; those who are off the radar or unnoticed, disengaged and undersupported; and those who have just begun dabbling in difficulty.

Woman, Inc. – Women Organized to Make Abuse Nonexistent
Women Organized to Make Abuse Nonexistent, Inc. (W.O.M.A.N., Inc.) has operated since ’78 as a community-based, multi-service agency, serving survivors of domestic violence in San Francisco and the larger Bay Area. Offering services such as a 24- hour support line and individual and family therapy, W.O.M.A.N., Inc. supports those impacted by violence using an innovative approach to services and programs that build stronger, safer communities.
