99% of all cases include financial abuse.

The method

Educate to empower.

Whether you’re a concerned loved one, an advocate trained to work with victims or are experiencing abuse yourself, education is a powerful step in the right direction. Our online curricula range from lesson plans for financial empowerment in English and Spanish to career planning and healthy financial relationship lessons for college students.

Hands cup a red heart

Support vital resources.

On one day in 2017, more than 11,000 requests for emergency shelter, child care and other services went unanswered because domestic violence programs lacked funding. We work to reverse this trend with an annual online fundraising competition called the Purple Purse Challenge, a robust grant program for nonprofits, and by encouraging donations from the public.

Start a national conversation.

Awareness fuels change. That’s why we’re making sure the issues of domestic violence and financial abuse are recognized—and discussed. By conducting and publishing ground-breaking research, creating widespread awareness via social media and partnering with nonprofits and ambassadors like Serena Williams, we’re initiating a national conversation.

The impact

Since 2005, we’ve helped more than 1.7 million survivors begin to achieve financial freedom.
