The Purple Challenge

Welcome to the Purple Challenge 2022!

Every October in honor of Domestic Violence Awareness Month (DVAM), HopeWorks kicks off a virtual fundraising campaign to raise awareness and support for those affected by intimate partner violence in our community.

DVAM is an opportunity for individuals, organizations, and communities to raise public awareness of intimate partner violence and engage in efforts to prevent it. HopeWorks invites advocates, family members, neighbors, supporters, and community members to stand together in solidarity and uplift survivors. Together, we can make a real difference in the lives of so many people in our community. Together, we can end domestic violence and create peace. Change begins today!

About the Purple Challenge Campaign

The Purple Challenge is a virtual, peer-to-peer fundraising campaign that begins on October 1 and lasts the entire month of October. Individuals and teams create personal fundraising pages to collect donations from their friends, family, coworkers, and neighbors. 100% of the funds raised during The Purple Challenge go to HopeWorks’ comprehensive intervention services, outreach and prevention education for survivors and our community.

Our goal is to have as many people as possible join The Purple Challenge! This can look like donating to the campaign, starting an individual or team fundraising page, attending an event, volunteering with HopeWorks, or sharing HopeWorks’ mission and message with your friends and family.
