Support The SAFE Center
The Tuscaloosa SAFE Center is a federally-recognized 501(c)(3) organization that is funded by the generosity of individuals, corporations, small businesses, foundations, students, and civic/social/community organizations. Every contribution – regardless of the size – helps us achieve our mission of providing forensic examinations to those who have been sexually assaulted.
Every dollar we receive is put to good and careful use, and your gift is tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law. Your donation will ensure that every patient who comes to the SAFE Center receives quality care and support, and you can make your donation by mail, phone or on-line.
Every sexual assault survivor deserves a chance to move forward, and your tax-deductible gift to the Tuscaloosa SAFE Center will make this a reality. Every gift makes a difference, we offer a variety of ways in which you can support the SAFE Center:

Other Ways to Support
Patients must often leave their clothing as part of the forensic exam. Therefore, there is a critical need for new, clean replacement clothing (shorts, t-shirts, sweat pants, flip flops, undergarments) for male and female patients.
After the forensic exam is complete, patients often want something to eat or drink. Bottled water, soft drinks, and individually-wrapped snacks (such as cookies, crackers, nuts) are needed and can be delivered to the SAFE Center between 8:30 am-4:30 pm.
Business, schools, and clubs can make an impact by hosting fundraisers on behalf of the SAFE Center. Contact us about setting up a support agreement for your event.
By inviting a representative from the SAFE Center to speak to your company, church, or civic/social club, you can help us raise awareness of the SAFE Center and the impact we are making in the community.
