In celebration of BARCC’s 40th Anniversary, the Giving Circle was created as a very special giving opportunity to celebrate 40 years supporting survivors and working to prevent sexual violence.
Our members joined the Giving Circle as a way of celebrating the difference they’ve made during the last 40 years, and the difference we will all make together in the next 40 years.
Joining the Giving Circle is the perfect way to honor your commitment to ending sexual violence, or pay tribute to someone close to you who has been part of BARCC or affected by this issue.
As a member of the Giving Circle, your leadership will inspire others to become a member and showcase their commitment to eradicating sexual violence.
Launched in November at our Champions for Change Gala, BARCC’s 40th Anniversary Giving Circle has raised more than $100,000 from over 50 supporters. They each hope you will join them and become a member of BARCC’s Giving Circle today.
