We are excited to announce that 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 domestic violence 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 awarded 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.
