What We Need

Our fundraising goal of $550 covers Alipato Project's office rent for June and July. 

Alipato Project's Mission

To ensure the safety and financial wellbeing of families in California by providing legal representation to domestic violence survivors in tort actions against their batterers.

One out of every three women in the world will be raped, beaten, trafficked, or abused in her lifetime. In California alone, law enforcement receives one domestic violence related call every three minutes. Your donation will help us reduce these numbers by supporting the first nonprofit organization to specialize in litigating domestic violence tort cases.

The Impact

By donating to the Alipato Project, you demonstrate to domestic violence survivors that you believe they deserve attorneys to take on their case. 

Litigating domestic violence tort cases not only financially compensates a victim for the harms they endured, but also puts batterers in California on notice that their future misconduct will come at a substantial price. 

Nonprofit 501c3 status: pending

Alipato Project's 501(c)(3) status application is pending. If the IRS grants our application, your contribution will be treated as tax-deductible, retroactive to the date of our organization's formation (09/21/2012).
