Delores Barr Weaver Fund Challenge A Success

 

Betty Griffin Center Meets Goal to Receive $100,000 Challenge Grant from the Delores Barr Weaver Fund

Thanks to your generosity, we’re excited to announce that you have helped us raise $100,000 in 2018 to meet the challenge grant goal to receive a matching grant of another $100,000 from the Delores Barr Weaver Fund!

Donations received through the matching grant will be used to fund our shelter operations, counseling and educational programming, the rape care unit at Flagler Hospital, child advocates and many other operational needs — which will enable us to continue to help the growing number of victims of sexual and domestic assault in our community.

By taking part in the Weaver Challenge Grant, you can know you have helped provide financial support for programs and services that are vital in our efforts to end domestic and sexual violence and to save lives.

We appreciate each person and business that took part in this special fundraising effort — which doubled the impact of your giving!

If you have questions about your gift to Betty Griffin Center,  please call the Development Office at (904) 808-8544, ext. 208, or email to NicoleP@bettygriffincenter.org.
