How You Can Help

Volunteer

We couldn’t provide the services that we do without the ongoing support of a large and active network of volunteers. There are many ways that volunteers donate their time and skills to support our agency and the people we serve. Please check out our volunteer section for more information on how to get involved.

Hold a Fundraiser

Please consider coordinating a fundraiser – on your own or through your church or community group – and donating the proceeds to Family Violence Project. Fundraisers like home parties, penny drives, bottle drives, car washes, and bake sales are a great way to help.

Make a Financial Contribution

Your gift supports our mission to end domestic violence in Kennebec and Somerset counties. We can accept your generous donation in three ways.

Single donation – a gift that may be made as a donation or as a tribute to someone you may know.

Monthly Giving – a gift that you would like to give on a monthly basis. This too may be a tribute to someone you know or a general donation. Once you complete the set up form, our database will transfer your donation each month.

FVP Booster – An FVP Booster is a person who is willing to make small donations for a big reward. For more information click here.

You may also mail your contribution to: Family Violence Project, P O Box 304, Augusta, Maine 04332-0304

During certain times of the year we may hold events or run campaigns which may also be done through the above options.

Family Violence Project appreciates your generosity and your support to help us end domestic abuse in our communities.
