Created in 2020 for GivingTuesday, GiveForDV is a cause-based giving community encouraging organizations and people to unite to support survivors and domestic violence organizations. In 2021, GiveForDV was linked with Domestic Violence Awareness Month (DVAM) to create a season of giving, community, and awareness for domestic violence.
This year, NYSCADV is partnering with the National Network to End Domestic Violence (NNEDV) and other state and territorial coalitions across the nation for #GiveForDV, a campaign that calls on individuals to step up and give back to support survivors of domestic and sexual violence, and the programs that help them find safety. #Every1KnowSome1 who has suffered abuse; 1 in 4 women and 1 in 7 men experience severe physical violence in their lifetimes, but abuse is so much more than physical - it's psychological, emotional, verbal and financial, too. Help us build a safer New York by participating in #GiveForDV.

These supporters create their own fundraising page as a spin off of your main #GiveForDV profile. Your Fundraisers will share that page with their network to expand the reach of your cause and bring in new donors. These individuals are passionate about the work you do, and use their voice to make a difference! Click here to learn more about setting up a P2P Fundraiser.
