Give the Gift of Empowerment and Safety!
This holiday season, we need your support to continue our work to empower more people in the Bay Area with IMPACT skills. We appreciate your donation of any amount to help make everyone in our community safer!
We pride ourselves in being a streamlined organization that maximizes every single donation dollar. In 2019 we shared IMPACT with more people than ever before, offering our signature empowerment self-defense course as well as classes focused on deescalation skills and boundary setting to promote physical and emotional safety. We have expanded our programming by offering more school-based classes and more corporate trainings.
Our LGBTQ and Women of Color Basics classes this year have been extremely successful, highlighting the need to create more affinity spaces for healing and empowerment. Your donation will allow us to expand these and other programs next year.
Thank you so much for your generosity!
To sustain our efforts year-round, we invite you to sign up to become a monthly donor.Donate

Thank you for donating to our cause!
IMPACT teaches full force self defense as well as verbal conflict resolution techniques to women, teens and members of the LGBTQ community. 100% of our students report that they feel significantly better able to deal with an attack after taking our classes.
In today’s climate this program is particularly important. At IMPACT we believe safety is a right, not a privilege. We do not turn anyone away regardless of their financial situation. Thanks to generous donors we have raised enough to provide 3 full scholarships to our 3 day - 24 hour class!
Please click the orange “DONATE" button in the upper right corner to give the gift of safety to someone. I’m so thankful for your donation of any amount. I can’t tell you how much it means to me to have your support in this!
