Voices Against Violence celebrates 5 years of raising funds and creating systemic change

August 24, 2010

Since 2006, The Women’s Fund Voices Against Violence Giving Circle has made its mark in efforts to raise funds and make grants to reduce the incidence of domestic violence in our community. The Giving Circle of local attorneys, judges and law firms has raised more than $327,000 to invest in sustainable change, including $90,000 in this fifth and final year of fundraising.

Grants have been used to assess community needs and provide tools for appropriate responses to domestic violence, including new ways to hold perpetrators accountable, according to Andrea Kirby, Philanthropic Coordinator for The Women’s Fund, a component fund of the Community Foundation of Greater Birmingham. “Our multi-pronged approach has created and enhanced a collaborative network comprised of the judicial system, the corporate sector and the community,” she said.

You can join the fundraising with your $100 contribution and be part of the networking event on Thursday, August 26, at 5:30 p.m. at the Birmingham Museum of Art, with U.S. Attorney Joyce Vance as keynote speaker.

    When I initially commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox
    and now each time a comment is added I get several e-mails with the same comment.
    Is there any way you can remove me from that service?

    Appreciate it!
