The 1 in Four website has been up and running since mid August 2012. We are growing in leaps and bounds -- these are truly exciting times!

Starting in January 2013 1 in Four revealed that we are now accepting donations. Please be sure to continue scrolling down the page and read our Terms of Donations. Any amount helps, as even small donations add up over time. We are grateful to all of our repeat donors and couldn't function without their on-going generosity!

PayPal is a safe and secure way to use your credit card or your bank account (where available) online. Simply follow the instructions and you are on your way to donating to a worthy cause. Our organization is currently run on an entirely volunteer basis. Every part of the website, from the graphics to the on-going Calendar and a Blog from a Survivor (along with all the background work connecting with community service agencies) has been crafted by Cathy, Jen and Cass --  three co-founders who are passionate about getting women and children in Hamilton who have experienced Domestic Violence connected with the services they need.

Operating costs and overhead have come out of pocket or been donated generously by the community, but in 2013 there are big plans for growth.  We need your help to achieve those goals. No donation is too small, everything helps. Please consider making a donation to 1 in Four one of your best charitable acts of the year!

If you are a corporation, small business or individual interested in sponsoring 1 in Four , we are very excited to hear from you! Please contact us via email [email protected]

We are also open to in-kind donations, items that would help get us on our way, specifically:

    • ink-jet printer
    • ink
    • paper
    • digital camera
    • laptop
    • portable overhead projector
    • office desk chair(s)

Donations are gratefully accepted in the form of a Staples gift card for office supplies, copies, printing, etc.  Or if you are planning on upgrading to a newer model tablet and wondering what to do with your older one, we certainly have a use for it!

Terms of Donation:

Currently 1 in Four does not have a charitable status registration of our own. We have signed on as a small project of the SPRC of Hamilton which offers us financial flow-through for the handling of donations, and can now offer charitable tax receipts.  Stay tuned for this portion to be updated as we sort out all the specifics on how to make this happen!  If you are interested in donating NOW, please do, and with the information provided through PayPal, we will be able to track-back to send out receipts. If you have donated and we haven't contacted you about this yet, please email us at [email protected]

We are grassroots and volunteers, we are very new to this and trying not to step on any toes or make any mistakes. The truth is, there are real operating costs for this website, from domain registration, to hosting and tech support, just to name a few. We are excited to move forward and continue offering our services to the community, and feel we have shown our staying power as we have continued to grow over the past months.

1 in Four would like to thank you for taking a chance in supporting us during our fragile development period.
