Purple Purse Challenge


Did you know that nearly 100% of domestic violence victims experience some form of financial abuse? You can be a HERO to them! Join Women’s Center & Shelter of Greater Pittsburgh in helping hundreds of women and children by participating in the AllState Foundation’s Purple Purse Challenge dedicated to combating financial abuse.

Yes! I want to be a hero

The Purple Purse Challenge is a national competition kicking off October 2nd and ending October 31st. The team that raises the most online during the Challenge will win a $100,000 donation! Can you imagine how many women and their children can be helped with that incredible amount of money? And, the great news is that WC&S keeps all money raised through our Crowdrise page!

It’s easy to get involved! Here’s how:

Donate directly through the WC&S Purple Purse Challenge Crowdrise page (remember that ONLY donations made through this page count towards our total)

Fundraise on behalf of WC&S by creating your own Team from the WC&S Purple Purse Challenge Crowdrise page by clicking the “Fundraise for this Community Partner.” Feel free to share why this fighting domestic violence and financial abuse is so important to you.

Share, Share, Share! Help us to spread the word by sharing our social posts from Facebook, Twitter and Instagram!
