I'm on the board for Becky's Fund, and spend a lot of time with the team and their clients. I can say with confidence (and data) that this organization's ability to raise awareness and serve constituents is as good as any that I've been a part of (I've served on several non-profit boards). Becky Lee (founder and ED) is very passionate about the mission and constantly supports victims and their families nearly 24x7, and the use of funds is very transparent and appropriate, guided by a thoughtful strategy and mission. The ethics and outcomes of Beckys Fund are excellent and the core reasons why I view them as among the best out there.

As a board member, volunteer, and friend, Becky's Fund is a movement: a movement towards a world, a community, a culture that is free of domestic violence and the emotional, mental, spiritual and physical devastation that it inflicts upon the victims. Becky Lee has discovered and has promoted that the key to stopping DV is not only in taking an introspective look at the victim, but for EVERYONE to be accountable, for men and women to ask the question: "Why does he/she abuse, control, harm?" We often want to point to the victim with heavy hearts and deep concern and help them to leave. BF is educating and creating awareness around the issue where we are forced to be accountable and to look at the symptoms, signs, and sources of the despicable behavior that often destroys lives and, much too often, takes lives. As a mom, a sister and a friend, I am thankful for organizations like BF -- which is not afraid to be bold and to take a stand. I am honored to be a part of the movement.

In so many ways-being engaged with survivors of domestic violence who have become empowered, encouraged and strengthened by the hard work, never-ending diligence and committment of the organization to help whenever and however they can.

I first discovered Becky's Fund in 2007 during one of the organization's fundraising events. I was struck with how different their approach is. Becky's Fund treats Domestic Violence (DV) as a basic human rights issue without politicizing the topic. Becky's straightforward focus on education and prevention make it possible for victims to become survivors, to focus on recovery and empowerment. The organization also engages young men and women in order to help form healthy attitudes about relationships at an early stage - before behavior patterns have become set in and destructive. But Becky's Fund also directly assists survivors in recovery. There are many charity/non-profit organizations in Washington DC. It is often difficult to measure the impact some of them have on their intended cause. But with Becky's Fund, I see it every day.

I worked directly with Becky Lee to help change a survivor's locks after she left a destructive and violent relationship. It was very gratifying to experience the positive impact this had on the woman's confidence.

I would raise more funding and push our programs out on a national level. This is a goal we strive to accomplish daily. We can always use more staff and resources!
