Hi everyone!

As you know, MaleSurvivor is a non-profit organization that has always depended on the generosity of our community members for its survival. From the mods and greeters all the way up to myself and the board, we all give generously of our time and energy to try ensure that we have a thriving and safe community of healing for all. And your participation and support is a vitally important part of that as well.

In 2013 well over 400,000 people visited MaleSurvivor.org. We had more people attend a Weekend of Recovery than ever before. We spoke with hundreds and hundreds of amazingly courageous survivors and compassionate professionals at Dare to Dream community events, professional conferences, and trainings all over North America. We are all truly making a huge difference by helping get the word out that EVERY survivor of sexual abuse is worthy of Hope, Healing and Support.

How can I support MaleSurvivor?

Here are some easy (and a couple free! laugh ) ways you can help support MaleSurvivor and ensure that we can continue even more survivors find the hope, healing, and support they need.

Also - if you'd like to make a donation to the Weekend of Recovery Scholarship Fund

Last year we distributed over $17,000 in financial support to help men who would otherwise been unable to afford to attend a weekend be able to do so. The overwhelming majority of scholarship supports comes from other survivors, many of whom have attended Weekends themselves and want others to be able to experience these transformative retreats.
