Thank you for your recent contribution. Your support makes it
possible for us to continue operating the National Sexual Assault
Hotline at 1-800-656-HOPE and to complete extensive education & outreach
programs to prevent sexual assault, enhance services to victims
and improve the like hood that rapists will be brought to justice.
Since 1994, RAINN has touched the lives of millions of Americans.
· To date, more than 600,000 American have received free,
confidential counseling through the National Sexual Assault Hotline.
· Additionally, more than 120 million Americans each year
receive vital information about sexual assault prevention, prosecution
and recovery, thanks to RAINN’s public service ads, curriculum
programs, one-on one outreach and close cooperation with media.
Innovative partnerships allow RAINN to maximize public education
while minimizing costs.
Still, there is much work to do. According to data from the U.S.
Department of Justice, only one rape in twenty results in a jail
sentence. And, due to the tight local law enforcement budgets,
DNA evidence from 350,000 rape cases is sitting, untouched, on
shelves awaiting analysis. As the evidence sits, rapists roam free.
RAINN is working hard on both these issues.
RAINN receives no government funding; we rely entirely on contributions
like yours. More than 87 cents of every dollar raised goes directly
to helping victims of sexual assaults, making RAINN one of the
most efficient non-profit organizations in America. And, it’s
one of the reasons Worth Magazine selected RAINN as one of “Americas
100 Best Charities” (12/01).
Please know that every day your contribution is making a difference
in the lives of thousands of people. Thank you again.
