• What is Men Who Give?

    A unique campaign developed by a concerned group of men who felt compelled to help raise much needed funds for domestic violence programs and services in the Greater New Haven, Shoreline and Lower Naugatuck Valley communities.

  • What Do Donations Support?

    Safe shelter, advocacy, crisis intervention and counseling for more than 7,000 individuals, families and children. All UCDVS services are provided free of charge.

  • How Can I Help?

  • There are many ways men throughout Connecticut can help us end the cycle of domestic violence. Make a donation, pledge to raise a certain amount of funds, hold an event, dinner or party and ask your friends, family and colleagues to contribute to the cause.

  • Why I Give ~ Messages from a few MWG Champions

    “If everyone gave a little, we would make the goal!”
    Walter & Wally Archer, Oxford, CT

    “Each year more than 50,000 CT residents are victims of domestic violence. I know my gift will help those women, men and children receive the services they need to live safe, healthy and happy lives. Donations provide crisis services, safe house services, and community education. Each dollar donated will help save the life of someone in danger and I’m happy that I can help.”
    Bill Bassett, Southbury, CT

    “We should have zero tolerance for domestic violence in our society. It is harmful to the adults and do not forget its harm to the children.”
    John Leventhal, MD, New Haven, CT

    “I give and volunteer because all people deserve respect, no one should be abused mentally or physically. Life is a gift to be cherished”
    Joesph Pagliaro, Jr., Shelton, CT
