Reach With Me! 2024

The REACH team would like to thank everyone who contributed to our 2024 Reach With Me! fundraising campaign. Thanks to your generous contributions, we can put just under $6,500 towards our domestic violence survivor assistance and advocacy initiatives. The money we raised will be used to fund local outreach and education programs, advocacy services such as legal and financial aid, our Waltham-based emergency shelter, and more.

Here are just some of the amazing highlights from our 2024 Reach With Me! campaign:

  • Total amount raised: $6,497
  • Number of supporters: 104
  • Top of the team leaderboard: Deb Heimel with $1,572 raised
  • Largest single donation received: $500

Reach With Me! may be over, but you can still help support REACH's mission of ending domestic violence by making a general donation, donating in-kind items, or even volunteering with us.


Thank You for a Successful 2024 Gala!

We would like to extend our deepest gratitude to everyone who came out to the 20th anniversary Reach for the Stars Gala in April. Thanks to the generosity of our donors, we raised just under $500,000! The services we offer to survivors of domestic and intimate partner violence wouldn't be possible without you. Thank you again from all of us here at REACH Beyond Domestic Violence.
