Make A Difference

As a non-profit 501(c)3 we rely on a mixture of private and public grant money, fundraisers, private donations, sponsorships and volunteers to support our work for victims of sexual assault. No contribution is too small. Click below to see how you can make a difference.

The Fort Wayne Sexual Assault Treatment Center recognizes that addressing sexual violence as a “major public health concern” as identified by the Center for Disease Control must be done as a community wide effort.  We are so very fortunate in our Northeast Indiana corner of the world, that our community recognizes this as well.  It takes the efforts of over 53 different law enforcement agencies in 16 counties, hundreds of first responders and other personnel and the support of people like YOU to make a difference in the life of a victim of sexual assault.  We continue to be humbled by the generosity of individuals, who want to help us further our work by making cash and in-kind donations, hosting fundraisers, assisting with clerical duties or simply by spreading the word that we exist.  These types of commitments clearly demonstrate that our community values the services we provide at the Fort Wayne Sexual Assault Treatment Center. On behalf of our youngest patient who was just 37 days old and our oldest patient who was 94 years old and every patient in between we graciously thank you!  



The Fort Wayne Sexual Assault Treatment Center is entirely supported on the gracious gifts from individuals, foundations, community events, and corporations. All donations are tax-deductible. Donations and contributions can be mailed to: Fort Wayne Sexual Assault Treatment Center, 2270 Lake Avenue Suite 201, Fort Wayne, IN 46805. You can also donate via Paypal by clicking on the Donate button below. For questions regarding donations and contributions or to find out what our current needs are, please call us at 260-423-2222 or email This email address is being protected from spambots.

Sponsorships support our educational opportunities and fundraising events. The trainings we provide to law enforcement, healthcare providers, first responders, and others are crucial in getting patients to us within the optimal timeframe for the medical forensic examination; including evidence collection. Sponsor funding allows us the flexibility to increase our education and outreach activities, and supplements our fundraising efforts thereby increasing opportunities for all to break the silence. When our patients speak ...we listen. We listen and offer choices for healthcare needs, reporting options, and resources to begin the healing journey. Help us break the silence by making a difference through a sponsorship. This email address is being protected from spambots.
