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 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!
