Top Ten Reasons to Donate to Polaris on #GivingTuesday!

  1. Only on #GivingTuesday, we have a triple match, up to $65,000 offered by The Greenbaum Foundation and the Polaris Board of Directors. Your gift of $100 will mean $300 of support for our programs to restore freedom to survivors and disrupt the conditions that allow trafficking to flourish. 
  2. Your dollar goes further at Polaris – for five years running, we have been awarded Charity Navigator’s highest rating of 4 stars – a designation only 4% of charities have received.
  3. Polaris’s BeFree textline serves as a safe and silent access point to our text specialists who can help survivors to safety and connect them to services and your support will allow us to help more victims.
  4. You can give a gift in honor of someone in your life who wants to make a difference – not receive another pair of socks.
  5. Your gift helps us provide cutting-edge research for the field. In 2015 alone, Polaris produced reports on visa reform, labor trafficking in sales crews, and domestic sex trafficking of minors, among others.
  6. There are an estimated 21 million victims of human trafficking TODAY around the world and your donation will make a difference in their lives.
  7. Your support helps us provide a lifeline for victims of trafficking and community members who suspect trafficking in their communities through the Polaris-operated National Human Trafficking Resource Center
  8. Polaris uses an innovative approach to combating trafficking by collecting and leveraging data to understand how and where trafficking occurs with the support of tech partners including Google, Palantir, and Twilio, and with the support of donors like you.
  9. With your gift to Polaris, our client services team can offer more emergency rent, buy more groceries and diapers, and help stabilize our clients’ lives with gift cards to purchase the essentials they need.
  10. Because if you haven’t donated by now…we’ll give you one more chance.
