Support The Bridge
Without the support of the community, The Bridge could not offer a diverse scope of high-quality services to our clients. Individual or group donations are welcomed and appreciated, as are individual volunteers and groups of volunteers.
How Else Can I Help?
Contribute to The Bridge on a monthly or annual basis. Your gift can help pay for a mother and child to receive safe shelter, a family to eat a nutritious meal, or for a woman to receive much needed counseling.
Memorials/Honorariums/Wills and Bequests
Make a monetary contribution to help women and children in memory of a birthday, holiday, graduation, or to honor a loved one who has passed on. Leave a lasting legacy by sharing with your attorney and/or family your wishes to designate The Bridge as a beneficiary of your estate.
The Bridge is working to build a Children’s Community Center to better serve those clients in need.
Employer Gift Matching Programs
Many companies offer gift matching programs that can increase—even double—the impact of your financial gift and/or volunteer time donated.
The Bridge hosts several events throughout the year. You may support these events by becoming a sponsor, buying tickets or donating in-kind gifts.
#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration. It’s a movement that encourages individuals and organizations to give – whether it’s their volunteered time, charitable donations, or even the power of your own “voice” on social media. Join the celebration and give back on #GivingTuesday. This occurs on the first Tuesday of each November.

Volunteer Your Time
By giving time, survivors learn someone cares about them, maybe for the first time. Volunteers have a positive impact on survivors for the rest of their lives.
