The Delores Barr Weaver Matching Challenge
Quigley House is thrilled to be selected by The Delores Barr Weaver Fund to receive a dollar for dollar match up to $100,000 for contributions made through December 31, 2018!
If you have never given to Quigley House before, now is the time! Thanks to the generosity of Mrs. Weaver, contributions from new donors will be matched dollar for dollar up to $50,000. 100% of these funds will go toward operating emergency shelter and outreach services for victims of domestic violence and sexual assault. Contributions from current donors will be matched dollar for dollar up to $50,000 for our endowment fund.
By joining us in this effort, you can make a difference in the lives of victims and their families. Donations made to Quigley House help supply basic necessities such as food for residents, and the staff needed to operate emergency shelter and outreach services.
