CPAF relies on community support to keep our programs going strong.

You can make an impact!  We accept donations in multiple ways:

~  $25 supports a child’s birthday at our shelters for families affected by domestic violence, including cake and presents

~ $50 provides one night of emergency food and shelter for a family

~ $100 funds a workshop on dating violence prevention for Asian and Pacific Islander youth

~ $250 supplies a housewarming basket when families move to their new home

~ $500 gives a stipend to a survivor to get job training or take English as a Second Language

~ $1,000 pays for a week of summer camp at our shelters, including food and activities

Thanks to your generosity, we can change the lives of adult and child survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault, especially those in the Asian and Pacific Islander community.

Stock Donations

CPAF is now able to receive donations of long-term appreciated securities (stocks, bonds, and/or mutual funds).

Your donation to CPAF will maximize your tax savings because:

  1. Long-term appreciated securities with unrealized gains (purchased over a year ago, with a current value greater than their original cost) may be donated to a public charity with a tax deduction taken for the full fair market value of the securities — up to 30% of the donor’s adjusted gross income.
  2. Since the securities are donated rather than sold, capital gains taxes from selling securities no longer apply. The more appreciation the securities have, the greater the tax savings will be. For more information about this exciting new giving program, contact our Development Team.
