our national philanthropy

the national philanthropy

is to combat violence against women in its varied forms. This includes but is not limited to the following: rape, incest, domestic violence, sexual assault, stalking, exploitation, the trafficking of women and children, the abuse of migrant workers, intimidation at work, child abuse, harassment, and spousal abuse. Any kind of physical, emotional, or mental duress constitutes violence. 

our involvement

We have worked with organizations on and off campus by educating ourselves and the community, volunteering at shelters, attending and hosting events that empower women, raise funds and donate proceeds to organizations who support the same cause, and organize necessities into kits for local charities.


Some of the organizations we have worked with is:

Domestic Abuse Intervention Services (DAIS), Freedom Inc., It's On Us, and Promoting Awareness Victim Empowerment (PAVE).

Lead from the front is our motto. We strive to always lead from the front as we recognize the need to take action now.
