How Can You or Your Organization Help?
Verity’s 24/7 sexual assault crisis hotline is truly the core of all Verity services for survivors of rape and sexual assault, and the crisis line serves as an entry-point to additional support services. Rape crisis counselors ensure survivors know they are not alone and, most importantly, that the assault was not their fault. We support survivors in choosing their path in this life-changing process while providing tools that will empower each survivor to reclaim their life.
All donations to Verity are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law. Our EIN is 94-2437947. When you donate, we will send you a donation receipt for tax purposes. You can donate by cash or check in our office, or donate online here.
If you own or run a company, please consider matching employees’ donations to select nonprofits such as Verity. For other options involving planned and sustained giving, please contact Chris at ED@ourverity.org or 707-545-7270 extension 21.
Your support is greatly appreciated.
Become a Verity Volunteer
Please give consideration to these volunteer positions. By volunteering at any level in the organization you will learn about the true nature of sexual assault and how it affects each and every person in our society — from the victims and their loved ones to the many prejudices and misconceptions that surround sexual violence and abuse. As a Verity volunteer, you not only have the opportunity to support people at a very critical time of their life, but you help create lasting positive social change as well.
Volunteers are needed in all of the following areas:
- Prevention Educators – we will train you to speak to youth on sexual assault, sexual harassment, and alternatives to violence. Sexual assault prevention workshops are offered to any community group requesting information on child abuse and general sexual violence issues. Leave a message in the Prevention Education Manager’s voice mailbox (707) 545-7270 x 12.
- Crisis Line Counselors – we will train you in listening skills, crisis counseling, and community resources. You will become a state-certified Counselor. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if interested.
- Board of Directors – we are looking for energetic people committed to ending sexual violence. No previous board experience required; we will train you. Please leave a message in the Executive Director’s voice mailbox: (707) 545-7270 x 21.
- Fundraising – Help plan a fundraising event any time of the year or an awareness event during Sexual Assault Awareness Month in April. Please leave a message in the voice mailbox for Communications: (707) 545-7270 x 15.
