peace dove Supporting the AARC

Funding to support the Abused Adult Resource Center is a patchwork of many sources: foundation grants, the United Way, state and federal programs, profits from our Seeds of Hope gift store and corporate and individual gifts. The AARC provides all of its services to victims free of charge, with limitations and cuts in public funding. Personal gifts are essential to meeting the needs!

peace dove A Circle of Hope

A Circle of Hope gathers together individuals and companies who understand the devastation that domestic violence leaves behind. These are people who are commited to breaking the cycle of violence, providing sanctuary and preparing our children to live more peacful, safer lives. Joining a Circle of Hope is an expression of your support for the women and children devastated by domestic violence. Your membership and support endorse the AARC's work to heal their hurt, and express your faith and hope for a future of love without fear.

Membership in a Circle of Hope means pledging your support over the next five years in one of the following categories:

  • Healing: Recognizing your gift of $50-99 per year for the next five years.
  • Opportunity: Recognizing your gift of $100-499 per year for the next five years.
  • Peace: Recognizing your gift of $500-999 per year for the next five years.
  • Empowerment: Recognizing your gift of $1,000 or more per year for the next five years.

In addition, a fifth group has been created to honor major acts of philanthropy. The Frances Leach Society recognizes cumulative gifts to the Abused Adult Resource Center of $100,000 or more. This group bears the name of the late North Dakota philanthropist, whose deep belief in the promise of ending domestic violence drew her together with AARC volunteers in establishing this honor.
