 WAVE Weekend 2017


The WAVE Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization established in 2011. Our mission is to unite women and work to break the cycle of domestic and relationship violence through Awareness, Community and Empowerment.

• We Raise Awareness about the societal impact of sexual assault and domestic violence.

• We Build Community and fundraise to address the issue.

• We Empower Everyone, particularly youth and young adults, to recognize the warning signs of violence and to prevent its occurrence.

Dollars raised support The WAVE Foundation’s “Discover Your Power” program. This program is committed to empowering young people through training in relationship violence education, sexual assault awareness and self-defense. Your fundraising efforts are critical for us to expand the number of Discover Your Power classes we can offer and train more youth instructors to bring our program to their peers.
