Why Giving Society Members Give

Darryl Roberts

Darryl: “I am committed to LifeWire and its mission, which is one of the reasons I also joined the LifeWire Giving Society. Working with LifeWire has been rewarding to me personally and to my family. Through the knowledge I have gained and shared, we have been able to identify and refer friends who may be in unhealthy relationships to LifeWire.”

Kim: “I keep giving to LifeWire because my time and resources are multiplied and invested in life-saving services and social change. I’ve been moved to tears – many times – hearing survivor stories about how LifeWire helped them leave an abusive relationship and find safety, support, and a new beginning.”

Sharon Goldberg

Sharon: “As a member of the LifeWire Giving Society, I’ve committed to making a five-year annual contribution to help continue the organization’s important work. Awareness of domestic violence is increasing—a good thing—and more people are reaching out for support. I’m grateful LifeWire is here to offer hope and pathways for survivors.”

Bob: “I give to LifeWire because we have so much work to do to end domestic violence. I am so impressed with their focus on advocacy to help people in crisis and their increased focus on education to prevent domestic violence. LifeWire has a formula that works. They just need support from people like me.”
