General contributions and donations from individual supporters and organizational partners are essential for CSVANW`s sustainability and effectiveness. Your donation helps make it possible for us to cultivate and strengthen our ability to advocate for Native women and children and breaking of cycles of violence.
CSVANW is an award winning organization at the forefront to a dynamic approach to the tribal domestic and sexual violence fields that is demonstrating the most effective, creative and innovative ways to address and prevent the cycle of violence within tribal communities. Across the region, thousands of Native people have mobilized as part of strong networks within the movement to end violence, and are advocating for better response, services and community-led approaches to prevention using strength-based community programming.
What is GivingTuesday?
GivingTuesday is a global generosity movement unleashing the power of people and organizations to transform their communities and the world. GivingTuesday was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good. Over the past seven years, it has grown into a global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity.
Whether it’s making someone smile, helping a neighbor or stranger out, showing up for an issue or people we care about, or giving some of what we have to those who need our help, every act of generosity counts and everyone has something to give.
This year, GivingTuesday is on December 1, 2020.
The Coalition to Stop Violence Against Native Women (CSVANW) is participating in Giving Tuesday so we can continue to mobilize around the needs of our members. From getting personal protective equipment and cleaning supplies to our tribal domestic violence shelters, to gathering and dispersing hundreds of fabric masks to tribal communities—we are working to support those folks who are still showing up to provide life-saving services for survivors. We deeply believe this is a moment to reclaim our communities and imagine a future that centers the needs of those most impacted by violence.
In this time of uncertainty, there’s a fundamental truth that gives us hope – that together we can do extraordinary things. Over the past few months, the entire world has been coming together to show up, help out, give back, and heal. Whether that’s through donations to community organizations, celebrating victim advocates as essential workers, or prioritizing the safety of our elders, generosity has been helping the entire world get through this global pandemic. Together.
Not only do we need your support, we need your help to spread the word. Please tell your friends and family why you believe in our work and encourage them to support us too.
