From PayPal to Network for Good

ALIVE (Alternatives to Living in Violent Environments) was founded in 1983 to address the critical need for safe shelter for women and children victimized by domestic violence in St. Louis. ALIVE's mission is to provide counseling, emergency sanctuary and other critical services to adults and children impacted by domestic abuse, as well as to increase awareness in order to create a supportive community.

Making the move to DonateNow has proven very successful for our organization. ...  It’s helped us regain donors we might have lost.

Regina Przetak, ALIVE's Development Director, shares, "Now we have an efficient way to handle memorial and honor donations and can tailor our giving levels to sponsorships. It’s helped us regain donors we might have lost. They appreciate the ease of online donations and the instant confirmation of a gift."
