Give Where You Live - Thursday, June 4!
Do More 24 is just a few short weeks away. On Thursday, June 4th, thousands of people will join together to create positive change in our community.
Do More 24™ is a local movement that brings together nonprofit organizations, companies, and people committed to making a difference. Through focused online giving on June 4, 2015, Do More 24 provides the opportunity for people to create solutions to our region’s most difficult social challenges by determining which issues matter most to them and channeling their funding towards tackling those problems.
Powered by United Way of the National Capital Area, Do More 24 is a local movement that encourages donors to contribute to the causes and organizations closest to their hearts to solve our region’s most pressing challenges.
Last year, 11,000 Do More 24 donors contributed more than $1.1 million to participating nonprofits, which helped them to launch new programs, buy equipment, expand their services, hire staff and fill budget gaps. This year, we hope to help them do even more great work in the national capital area. https://domore24.org/#home

Bethany House is growing! Support our Capital Campaign.
Each year, the number of women and children seeking refuge in our emergency shelters for domestic violence victims is growing. Last fiscal year, BHNV provided safe and confidential shelter to 47 families escaping abusive homes, an increase from 42 families in FY 12-13 and just 39 families in FY 11-12.
Unfortunately, due to space limitations, we are forced to turn away scores of vulnerable women and children in desperate need of safety and support. These victims often face the unthinkable choice of becoming homeless or returning to their abuser.
To address this growing and critical need for shelter and services, BHNV has initiated its Raise the Roof! Capital Campaign to renovate and expand its oldest emergency shelter. The renovation will nearly double our capacity to house victims of domestic violence and will ensure a safe and comfortable home for women to rebuild their lives. The expanded facility will allow us to better serve victims of domestic violence in Fairfax County – a community where 33% of homeless families are homeless due to domestic violence – and surrounding Northern Virginia and DC metro communities.
We hope you will support our Capital Campaign. Your gift will ensure that individuals affected by domestic abuse in our community receive the best possible services to heal and move forward with their lives.
