Kids Are Our Business: New Donor Challenge!!!

Supporting Youth Services at the Advocacy Center.

A fundraising campaign for Advocacy Center

Advocacy Center 


At the Advocacy Center we help children, teens and adult victims of domestic violence, sexual assault and child sexual abuse in Tompkins County, NY. Last year we provided supportive services for over 1,400 youth and adult victims of abuse.  Help us ensure that children who have been sexually abused and children who have grown up in a home where there is domestic violence receive the services they need to recover from the trauma and support to build brighter futures.  

"You not only helped me and listened, but you believed in me." -Advocacy Center Client

New Donor Matching Challenge!!

Kids Are Our Business is a fundraising breakfast to support Youth Services at the Advocacy Center. This year Mike Carman and Versent have issued a challenge--Mike will match donations from New Donors who support our Kids Are Our Business fundraiser, up to $5000!!  So even if you can't join us for breakfast you can join with us to support services for abused youth in Tompkins County. And if you are a new donor, your support for these critical services for abused youth will be matched dollar for dollar! 

Your $25 becomes $50, your $100 becomes $200. 

"We donate because we know that it is an investment in the health and safety of our community. In both of our professions, we saw the harm that is caused by domestic and sexual violence, and saw the amazing work the Advocacy Center does to support victims, educate the community, and work against the perpetuation of violence."

-JoAnne and Alex Miner
