DETAILS OF THE 2017 PURPLE PURSE CHALLENGE:
Domestic violence is an epidemic that crosses race, religion
and economic class. This fall, you can help raise awareness of this critical
community issue with a few clicks of your mouse (or taps on your smartphone) by
supporting YWCA Dayton in the 2017 Allstate Foundation Purple Purse Challenge.
What is the Purple Purse Challenge?
For the second year in a row, YWCA Dayton has been chosen as one of
only about 200 organizations to participate in this nationwide crowdfunding
competition sponsored by the Allstate Foundation. Between Oct. 2 and Oct. 31,
the organizations in each of two divisions that raise the most funds will
receive an additional grant from Allstate, up to $100,000. See YWCA Dayton's Challenge page HERE.
What can I do?
Starting at noon on Oct. 2, and continuing through 1:59:59 p.m. on Oct. 31, 2017, donate to YWCA Dayton, or one of our team members, in the
Purple Purse Challenge. Share our Challenge page via email, social media and word of
mouth with everyone you know. And follow YWCA Dayton on social media to:
- Hear about weekly flash competitions that could result

How will I make an impact?
YWCA Dayton is the oldest provider of services and support
to victims of domestic violence in Montgomery and Preble counties, providing
the only domestic violence shelters for those fleeing abuse, as well as the oldest 24/7 crisis and domestic violence hotline in Montgomery County and the only such hotline in Preble County. Your contributions
will help make an immediate difference for women and children seeking safety by
ensuring the continuation of shelter services and professional crisis
intervention and support.
The Purple Purse Challenge lasts for 29 days; we invite you
to join us for the entirety of October in ensuring every woman and child can
