A Past Project of JLE-NS receives $100k for raising the most money during the PURPLE PURSE CHALLENGE.

The YWCA Evanston/North Shore was able to raise over $300,000 in just one month to fund our domestic violence programs.  We have received official notification that the YWCA has won an additional $100,000 for raising the most funds during the challenge! The Allstate Foundation Purple Purse Challenge to raise awareness and funds for domestic violence services.

Overall, the Allstate Foundation Purple Purse Challenge raised nearly $2.5 million in funds AND raised awareness about the prevalence of domestic violence and financial abuse locally, nationally and internationally.  Many wonderful domestic violence service providers from around the country will benefit not only from the funds that were raised but also from the awareness this campaign created. We appreciate your support of the YWCA Evanston/North Shore, and the women, children and families we serve.
