At SafeLives, we believe that domestic abuse can be stopped. Stopped before it starts. Stopped before it ruins lives.  By leaving a gift in your will to SafeLives, you can help us transform the lives of those affected by domestic abuse for generations to come. Your generosity will help us transform the response to abuse, providing long-term, wraparound support and safety to countless individuals and families.

Why leave a gift in your will?

Leaving a gift in your will is a powerful way to ensure that our vital work continues. It allows us to:

  • Champion survivors: continue expanding opportunities for those with lived experience to share their authentic voices and be heard by those who can effect change.
  • Educate and advocate: provide resources, guidance, training and support to professionals on the domestic abuse frontline.
  • Innovate solutions: develop new programs and strategies at local and national level to improve the response to domestic abuse.
  • Create systemic change: influence policy and practice to create a society where domestic abuse is no longer tolerated. It is not acceptable, not inevitable, and together – we can make it stop.
