Empowerment Beyond Scars is proud to collaborate with a network of partners who share our commitment to empowering survivors of domestic violence and intimate partner violence.

Are you a medical provider, service organization, or non-medical volunteer interested in offering your time, expertise, or services?

Our aim is to establish an efficient system designed to streamline support for domestic violence survivors by partnering with established nonprofits and the state. This collaboration intends to harness the existing wealth of knowledge from these organizations to eliminate barriers while ensuring targeted aid reaches those genuinely in need.

Volunteer efforts and pro bono services are instrumental in building a network of support for survivors of domestic violence, starting in Delaware and expanding across the U.S.

Empowerment Beyond Scars may receive financial gifts and/or gifts of securities. Some families may benefit from donating investment securities to the foundation. These donations may take the form of a standard donation or a qualified charitable donation (QCD). Investors (of any age) that hold a security for at least a year may itemize the fair market value of the stock as an income tax deduction. If 70½ or older, you may be eligible to make a qualified charitable distribution as well.

A qualified charitable distribution (QCD) is a tax-free donation from your individual retirement account (IRA) to a qualified charity. Benefits of qualified charitable distributions include a reduction in taxable income and the donation counts towards mandatory required minimum distributions from retirement accounts. The qualified charitable distribution (QCD) is an important tool that allows donors age 70½ or older to help charities of their choice and reduce their tax burden while providing a benefit to others.
