March is Women's History Month!
In 1981, a small group of women attorneys in the Denver area began meeting to discuss the inadequate enforcement of domestic violence laws they were witnessing. Through partnerships with shelter workers, therapists, and judges, they formed the Colorado Coalition for Justice for Abused Women (CCJAW) and began working to change laws, policies, and protocols for responding to domestic violence. In 1984, the coalition incorporated as a 501(c)(3) and became known as Project Safeguard (PSG).

Over the years, we have broadened the scope of our work to include all forms of gender-based violence and we have expanded our services. We are grateful to the women who saw a need in their community and took action to do something about it. Learn more about our herstory.

Here are a few ways you can support Project Safeguard all year long
Many nonprofits rely heavily on year-end giving from individual donors, which is why you get bombarded with emails asking you to give in November and December.
For some people, making a smaller monthly donation is more budget-friendly, and helps provide sustainable funding for nonprofits.

It's easy to make a one-time or recurring donation to Project Safeguard through our Colorado Gives 365 page.
Many workplaces have programs that allow employees to give to a charity directly out of their paycheck and some employers will even match donations! If you have made or are planning to make a donation, ask your employer if they will match it.

If you work for the City and County of Denver, you can give to Project Safeguard through The Denver Employees Charitable Campaign.
