Lead the way as a sponsor for Rise Together 2023!

Your support and leadership helps us continue life-saving, life-changing services for survivors of domestic, dating and sexual violence in Berkshire County.

​Why we rise:

For Safety - to raise awareness that help is available

For Justice - to stop the violence in our homes, our streets, our community, and for our children's future

​You make a difference:

You are building a community movement! Because of you, people know help is here! Since COVID, calls to our hotline increased 240%, and the numbers are still rising. With your support and partnership, EFC responds. ​

Last year, with our elected leaders, our community partners including the NAACP - Berkshires, Berkshire Pride, and Berkshire Immigrant Center, and YOU, we took to the streets to stop the violence and we raised over $153K for Elizabeth Freeman Center!

This year, we hope to raise $125,000 and we need YOU to make that possible.

​Rise Together involves a three month press and social media campaign. It will culminate in September with six community walks in Williamstown, North Adams, Pittsfield, Lenox, Lee, and Great Barrington.

​Where your dollars go:

  • $500 gives 10 survivors safe phones to call for help.
  • $1,000 helps sustain one month of after-hours coverage for our 24/7 hotline, so that no one's call for help goes unanswered.
  • $1,500 funds a week of our famed violence prevention education with middle school students to create change.
  • $2,500 supports 50 hours of specialized child counseling and supports for children who suffered or witnessed violence in their homes.
  • $5,000 provides 30 days of safe emergency shelter for two families fleeing danger.
  • $7,500 funds a week of our SAFEPLAN services to help survivors obtain protection orders in four county courts.
  • $10,000 provides full Money School services with workshops and individual supports for 10 survivors seeking safety and financial independence.
  • "When I came to Elizabeth Freeman Center I felt my life was over... I didn't know what to live for... I now have a full-time job and am enrolled in college. I now get up every day of my life knowing that I can make a difference."
