Wear your BIG heart on your sleeve and help us raise $235,000 to support the journeys of immigrant survivors of gender-based violence!
The Tahirih Justice Center’s Bighearted Campaign is an annual, peer-to-peer challenge for individuals, law firms, and community groups to raise critical funds for immigrant survivors of gender-based violence.
The global pandemic, as well as racist and xenophobic policies from the administration, has created unprecedented challenges for immigrant survivors seeking safety in the United States. Join us to ensure that survivors get the resources they need on their journey to safety and justice!Start Fundraising Today
The campaign is easy to join. Just create your fundraising page as an individual or on behalf of your firm, organization, or community group. If your firm, organization, or community group is already participating, you will soon receive details from your Bighearted Coordinator(s) about how to join as a team member.
Once your fundraising page is set up, it’s time to recruit your friends, family, and colleagues to make impactful donations, and perhaps even participate themselves! Keep an eye out for emails from Tahirih with client stories, reasons to give, and other materials to share with your networks. Also, be sure to check out the Bighearted Toolkit which includes fundraising and outreach tips, facts and statistics, and sample fundraising language.
