Welcome to SAFV's Virtual Summer Fundraiser

SAFV’s one-week virtual summer fundraiser replaces our largest fundraising events of the year. Our goal is to raise $12,000 to help us bridge the gap caused by the pandemic. Any contributions will help us meet our mission to advocate for victims and survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault while working to prevent domestic violence and sexual assault from ever occurring. During this uncertain time, SAFV has remained open to those who need us most.

Any donation we receive helps us work to continue working to meet our mission. 

Our mission, philosophy, and values guide our work 
Focus on our core value: Community

SAFV recognizes that domestic violence and sexual assault exists in Sitka, and we believe that systems of oppression, such as sexism, racism, and historical trauma are factors that create patterns of violence within our community. We recognize that women are disproportionately impacted by this violence, contributing to a power imbalance in Sitka.

SAFV believes in building partnerships in Sitka and across Alaska to create system changes that hold perpetrators accountable and to establish new norms where violence against women is not tolerated.
