VEST NEEDS YOUR SUPPORT!
By supporting the Victims Empowerment Support Team with a gift, you will be providing vital assistance to adults and children in our community who need to escape domestic violence and/or deal with the trauma of sexual assault. VEST is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, and your tax deductible donation goes directly to services we provide. These include emergency shelter, support groups for victims of violence and/or abuse, court advocacy and transitional housing. Please join us to support life-saving programs that can make a real difference in victims lives.

Organize a Giving Program in Your Workplace – Find out if your employers have non-profit donation programs that allow you to select the charity of your choice for donations to be made through automatic payroll deductions. Ask if they also have a matching program.
Bequests/Trusts – Another way to give is to consider making a planned donation to VEST in your will or living trust. Bequests can be made in cash, securities, real property or personal property.
