    Sexual Assault Awareness Month

    Highly rated charities involved in sexual assault advocacy.

    April is recognized as Sexual Assault Awareness Month, a crucial time dedicated to shedding light on the gravity of sexual violence, educating communities about its prevention, and amplifying the voices of survivors. This month is a call to action for everyone to play a role in creating safer environments and supporting those who have experienced such trauma. In light of this month, we have compiled a list of reputable charities that are at the forefront of offering immediate assistance and long-term recovery services to survivors of sexual assault.


    Statistics reveal the harrowing reality that millions face; it's estimated that nearly one in five women and one in seventy-one men in the United States have experienced rape at some point in their lives, according to the National Sexual Violence Resource Center. These numbers only scratch the surface, as many cases go unreported due to fear, stigma, or lack of support. Sexual Assault Awareness Month aims to break this silence, encouraging survivors to come forward in an environment of empathy and understanding and mobilizing society toward eradicating this violence.


    Click on the name of each organization to learn more about their mission, programs, and services, and consider making a donation via the Giving Basket. Your generous donations are vital in aiding the healing process and helping survivors and their communities to heal, rebuild, and find resilience in the aftermath of sexual violence.


    If you are a U.S.-registered 501(c)(3) charity with a three- or four-star Charity Navigator rating and are responding to this disaster/crisis, please complete and submit this survey, and our curation team will review.
