Ways to Give

Creating wiser communities: a short film

Anchored by the stories of survivors, volunteers, staff, and students, the film shares the many ways that WISE is leading the Upper Valley to end gender-based violence through survivor-centered advocacy, prevention, and education. For nearly fifty years, WISE has provided experience and expertise on the issues of domestic and sexual violence.

Every year, WISE supports survivors within twenty-one communities across 3 counties in New Hampshire and Vermont, teaches healthy relationship skills and strategies for safety to youth, and trains professionals on complex trauma and effective survivor-centered responses. WISE engages people of all ages and backgrounds to become active in the movement to end violence.

WISE relies on the community to support its Crisis Advocacy Services and Prevention Education Programs.

Your support allows us to provide comprehensive response to victims and to offer workshops and trainings to students, professionals, and adults in our community. Thank you for helping us end violence, share hope and change lives.

Planned Giving

You can make a gift that costs you nothing during your lifetime and does little, if anything, to impact your current cash flow and may leave your current financial planning unchanged.
