Events

While the majority of funding for our work comes from grants and contracts for services with agencies at the state and federal level, Peaceful Paths would be unable to complete our mission without local monetary support.  The critical donations that come from individual donors, organizations, and fundraising activities support client services, staffing, and pay for operational costs that are not covered by other funding.

Groups and organizations often provide fundraising activities that benefit Peaceful Paths, from food drives to the Vagina Monologues production.  These activities allow the organization to establish new donor groups, increase outreach in different communities, and provide invaluable match dollars for grant applications.
