Since DAIS was founded by a small group of volunteers thirty-seven years ago, the support we’ve received from the community has helped make sure that DAIS is there for victims of domestic violence when they need it most. Over the years, we’ve been amazed at the creative and heartfelt ways businesses, organizations and individuals have supported DAIS. Year after year, month after month, community members find ways to say “I WILL for DAIS” using their time, talents and treasure to support victims of domestic violence.
Right now, DAIS is growing to better meet the need for our services in Dane County. And the future is bright because there are people like you—compassionate people from across Dane County who say “I WILL for DAIS”. Saying “I WILL for DAIS” can be as simple as posting a DAIS flyer at your business, collecting old cell phones, or setting up a monthly recurring gift to DAIS at a level that feels comfortable to you. Or you can commit to a more ambitious project, like planning and hosting a fundraiser. No matter how you choose to say “I WILL for DAIS”, the important thing is you are bringing domestic violence out of the shadows and showing victims of domestic violence and their families that Dane County is a community that cares about them and their well-being.
