There are many ways that you can help support the mission and efforts at Skagit DVSAS. Pick one (or more!) below and know that we appreciate and value our community donors and partners immensely. When you give, you are joining us in taking a stand against domestic and sexual violence in our community.
We depend on the generosity of our community to help fund our much-needed services. Because of your support, we are here when the phone rings. Because of your donation, we can help hundreds of survivors a year. Because of you, we are making a difference. Every gift helps, no matter how small. If you can support us with a monthly donation, that’s wonderful as it helps us maintain a steady income for services! But even small, one-time donations go a lot further than you might imagine and are integral to our success. All donations are fully tax deductible and an annual receipt of your giving will be issued every year. If you choose to give a monthly donation, you may stop, start, decrease, or increase your gift at any time. Thank you for your support!
Hosting a fundraiser is easier than you might think. It allows you the chance to get creative, have some fun with family and friends, and help a great cause all at the same time. From the annual Bayview Women’s Walk and Run to house-hopping potlucks and snowmobile weekends, our generous community has hosted some great fundraisers on our behalf.
That mean that you can create your own fundraising page through our website, track your donors, and utilize our pre-built fundraising templates! It’s digital, user-friendly, and fun!

If you shop at Amazon, you can support Skagit DVSAS at the same time! Just click the button below and log in to start shopping. Amazon donates a percentage of every sale back to our agency. Just make sure to shop at www.smile.amazon.com and choose “Skagit Domestic Violence & Sexual Assault Svcs” as your chosen charity. Easy peasy! Also, gift cards make a great donation as well. Your unused gift card to a department store, grocery store, or gas station helps with our funding and is an easy way for you to contribute.
We strive to give our clients the best possible care during their time of crisis and the support of the community makes our jobs much more manageable.

Visit our wishlists below to see if there’s anything you can contribute. The purchase of gift cards and the donation of unused gift cards also helps.

Many employers in our area offer a “Matching Gift” for local charities. Employee matching gifts are donations made by an employer to match the donation of its employees. These types of grants are an essential means of support for agency. It’s an effective means of funding some of our projects and helping us to maintain our community support for survivors in need. Ask your Human Resources Department if your employer offers matching gifts, and if so, designate Skagit DVSAS as your charity! Or, if you are an employer interested in establishing a matching program for your business, reach out to our Development Coordinator for more details and support.
*Please note that we encourage fundraising events that are consistent with our mission. Skagit DVSAS is an anti-violence and anti-oppression organization. We do/will not endorse, support, or act as a beneficiary to any event that we believe engages in, promotes or encourages any form of violence, racism, homophobia, ableism — or any other type of oppressive ideals and behaviors.
