A Woman's Place (AWP) is building a wave of generosity to support a society where all individuals are safe in their relationships and can flourish. Your small act can create the powerful ripple that thousands of survivors of domestic violence need to feel today. There is no act too small or too big - and remember that when you help others, you're also being GENEROUS to yourself.

Explore the links below to learn more about how you can be GENEROUS today!

  • Your financial contribution to AWP makes it possible to remain nimble and responsive to immediate needs - whether it is a night of emergency shelter, food and personal care items for a family, support and advocacy for a victim in court, legal assistance, counseling, education, or more. There is no gift too big or too small. Every GENEROUS dollar has impact! Make a safe and secure donation online or mail a check payable to A Woman's Place to P.O. Box 299, Doylestown, PA 18901.

  • The Founding Mothers’ Society is an exclusive giving circle honoring the Founding Mothers of A Woman’s Place. Mary Jane Kirkpatrick, Patricia Garrett, Doris Payne-Camp, and Beverly Frantz came together 45 years ago with the mission to end domestic violence. Even as AWP is leading the movement they seeded, domestic violence is far from over. The Founding Mothers’ Society will focus on long-term strategic and transformational giving. As a member of The Founding Mothers’ Society, you will create social change. Your gift will help break the cycle of domestic violence and move survivors to a place of permanent empowerment. Join us and invest in the future of the movement to end intimate and domestic violence for all.

  • You can be GENEROUS with you thoughts for others and spread small acts of kindness. Consider sending a "love note" to AWP to share with the survivors and/or advocates. Take a few moments to jot your kind words and well wishes into a email, send it along, and we'll make sure to share it. The power of your kindness will feed your own thriving and the thriving of others. If you prefer to send a handwritten note, please mail it to A Woman's Place, P.O. Box 299, Doylestown, PA 18901.

  • Your donation of an item or two from our wish list supports both our shelter-based and community-based families. Meeting basic food, hygiene, comfort, and baby needs is vital to successfully accomplishing our mission. This list updates regularly. Please check back often. If you have any item you'd like to donate that is not on the list, please call 215.343.9241 x125 to chat about need and storage capacity.

  • Gratitude is an important key to finding happiness. Being aware of and paying attention to what we feel grateful for connects us to others and puts us in a positive place. Take time to make yourself feel happier and more fulfilled by pausing to reflect on what you feel grateful for and then share that gratitude. Take a moment to visit AWP's Facebook page and share what you are grateful for today.

  • #GivingTuesday is a global day of giving and unity that will take place on December 1, 2020. Think about how you can drive a spike of generosity and then act! Maybe you are able to donate needed supplies or can support a small business by purchasing a gift card. Perhaps you can safely help a neighbor in need. Please also consider giving to one of your favorite nonprofits. The need is there and your GENEROUS action helps.
