How to Donate

Your donation keeps our doors open, our phones answered, and provides safety and hope for women, children, and men in our eight-county service region. DVIP serves Johnson, Iowa, Cedar, Washington, Henry, Van Buren, Lee, and Des Moines Counties. When you give, you have the satisfaction of knowing that you are helping those most vulnerable and saving lives!

DVIP is a 501©3 Tax Exempt Organization and our Tax ID Number is 42-1124902

Did you know you can make a recurring automatic donation to sustain DVIP services?

You can make a weekly, bi-weekly, monthly, bi-monthly, quarterly, or annual donation. Pick the amount and how often you would like to donate and provide a credit/debit card number for automatic withdrawals.

You can designate your donation for our general fund or in a specific way:

  • “Support for Victims/Survivors”- goes toward our general needs fund
  • “Cooper’s House”- goes toward our in-shelter dog kennels and “Cat Haven” (we are the only domestic violence shelter in Iowa that provides shelter for pets within our facility)
  • You can make a donation “In Memory or Honor” of someone.
  • Or you can choose “Other” and state a specific use for your funds (youth programming, a specific county, housing, etc)

To make a one-time or recurring credit/debit card donation click DONATE NOW.
