Donations are what make our services happen; Thank You!
Sexual Assault Crisis Center was established in 1978 as a nonprofit IRS Code, 501(c)(3) which means donations to our agency are deductible to the full extent of the law as charitable contributions.
We’re able to provide our services in Outagamie and Calumet Counties due to the generosity and continued support of donors. We’ve been a United Way Fox Cities agency since our beginning and 33% of our support comes from this partnership. We also receive a small portion of our funding from United Way of New London.
Another way we raise monies is through grants which is another 33% of our income. Half of our grants come from your state tax dollars at work in your community (yup, we like taxes!) We’re state-funded through Sexual Assault Victim Services (SAVS) and Victims of Crime Act (VOCA); and periodically, we are awarded monies from Violence Against Women Act (VAWA). Our other grants come from the generosity of local granting foundations like the J. J. Keller Foundation, Roundy’s Foundation and Memorial Presbyterian. Church. We continually seek relationships with other funders to enhance our programs.
The last portion of our funding comes from the generosity of local individuals and corporations and through our annual fundraiser, “Shall We Dance?”. These relationships are very personal for us and we’re extremely grateful for the friendships that we’ve raised over the years.
All these fundraising parts make a whole and help us succeed in moving victims to survivors. Thank You! Together we can end sexual violence in the Fox Cities.
