Fundraising & Walk Teams

In the months leading up to the HopeFest, teams, and individuals raise funds to help Alexandra House achieve its mission to empower victims/survivors of domestic and sexual violence, and inspire social change, through education, support, and advocacy. Our goal is to raise $15,000 through HopeFest to ensure Alexandra House is here when a victim/survivor turns to us for safety, support, and hope. This year we have two (2) matching gifts, totaling $7,500! This means donations made will be matched, dollar-for-dollar up to $7,500!
