As you know, for the past two years, Northwest Advocacy Foundation has partnered with the Allstate Foundation’s Purple Purse Challenge. Earlier this year, Allstate announced that 2018 was the last Challenge. We're disappointed about this, but just because the Purple Purse Challenge is done, doesn’t mean we are. Access to justice continues to be a problem for low- to moderate-income individuals, and that’s doubly true for victims of domestic violence. We are committed to continuing to offer affordable legal services to folks who desperately need it, and we are hopeful that we can still count on your support. Beginning this year, we’ll be hosting an annual fundraiser during the first two weeks of October, which is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Now through October 15, 2019, we’ll be asking you to make a donation, which will allow us to continue to offer legal advice to victims who are in abusive relationships but want to find a way out, represent survivors in court to secure domestic violence protection orders and protective parenting plans, and everything in between. To give you an idea of how your donation could help (any donation, regardless of size, is greatly appreciated):
$75 provides one client with a 60-minute consultation with an attorney;
$150 provides one client with a Petition for a Domestic Violence Protection Order, drafted by a licensed attorney;
$300 provides one client with legal representation in a court hearing – which can make all of the difference in the progression of their case;
$600 provides one client with legal representation in court-ordered mediation;
$1,125 provides all of the above.
The numbers above are for illustrative purposes, and do not guarantee that your donation of a specified amount will be used in whole or in part for the corresponding example.

We are really looking forward to this fundraiser, and are so appreciative to have you sticking by our side throughout this transition. Thank you, sincerely, for your support these past few years. We are a small nonprofit, but we are able to make a meaningful impact in the lives of our clients, thanks to your continued support. We couldn’t do it without you!
