Support W.O.M.A.N., Inc. – 2016 Allstate Purple Purse Challenge


W.O.M.A.N., Inc. has been selected again to participate in The Allstate Foundation Purple Purse Challenge! Last year, this campaign raised nearly $3.1 million for DV organizations across the nation & we’re going to be apart of that effort for the 2nd year in a row.

So here’s the deal: The Purple Purse Challenge is a fundraising campaign launched by The Allstate Foundation where DV organizations compete to raise the most money during Domestic Violence Awareness Month. The top team wins a grand prize cash donation of $100,000 from The Allstate Foundation. We are one of 250 agencies selected throughout the U.S., so this is a pretty cool opportunity!

It starts on September 28th at 9am PST and, this year, more than $650,000 will be given away to participating organizations in the Challenge. We’d get big monetary prizes for placing in the top 5 and opportunities to win prizes during the weekly bonus challenges that happen throughout the month. On top of all of that, we get to keep 100% of all the funds we raise in the process. Pretty dang sweet.

How You Can Help: Join Our Team, Become a Fundraiser!

Please consider joining our team as a fundraiser. By reaching out to your network of supporters, you can help us make an even bigger impact. You’d be helping us increase our visibility, raise awareness for domestic violence and fund our awesome programs!

Team W.O.M.A.N., Inc. | 2015 Allstate Purple Purse Challenge

We’re super excited to announce that we were chosen to be apart of The Allstate Foundation Purple Purse Challenge, a fundraising campaign launched by The Allstate Foundation to raise awareness about financial abuse and to promote economic empowerment. As one of ~160 domestic violence agencies throughout the nation chosen to participate, it is HUGE that we were selected. This is an amazing opportunity to fund raise and increase visibility and awareness.

It all starts on October 1st and to give back, they’ll be donating $495,000 to organizations focused on ending domestic violence and assisting survivors with financial independence. The organization that raises the most during the Challenge will get a $100,000 donation* to their cause. Second place gets $75,000, third gets $50,000, fourth gets $25,000 and fifth place gets a $20,000 donation. We’re ready to raise as much money as possible and we really need your help to make it happen.

How You Can Help

1) Become a Fundraiser
It would be so amazing if our incredible supporters became fundraisers. By setting up a fundraiser for our cause and reaching out to your network of supporters, imagine the impact we can have.

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.’

Once you start your fundraiser, make sure to update it with the story of why you’re one of our biggest supporters. Allstate says the more compelling the story, the more likely you are to get donations. Also make sure to put pics and even videos on your fundraising page that help to illustrate why this cause means so much to you. Then, when the Challenge starts on October 1st, share it with everyone you know and start raising money. Not only would this be a great and much appreciated opportunity to support us, the fundraiser who raises the most money will win THE limited edition Purple Purse designed by Scandal’s Kerry Washington!

2) Donate
If fundraising isn’t a viable option for you, select a fundraiser and give what you can! Every donation makes a difference, no matter how big or small.*

3) Spread the word!
We understand fundraising takes time, donating takes money and that not all of us have the capacity for that. Just taking a moment to share this on your social media platforms would be a great help! We created a Facebook event for easy sharing — you can access it here.
