Our Charities

We have two charities that have really stepped-up their commitment to SASS.  In addition being our beneficiaries, Betty Griffin Center and St. Francis House each have created a special fund dedicated to the proceeds donated on behalf of SASS.


SASS for Survivors through Betty Griffin

Betty Griffin Center, which saves and changes lives by offering free services to domestic and sexual violence survivors as well as education programs to the community, has created a fund specifically for SASS.  Your IRA donation to “SASS for Survivors” at Betty Griffin Center will provide funding for the programs offered to adults and children experiencing domestic or sexual abuse.

SASS Women's Rebound Program through St. Francis House

This program provides critical assistance to help women experiencing homelessness to access permanent housing in a timely manner.  These women - many of whom have children - have jobs but are unable to afford such costs as rental utility deposits, security deposits and the purchase of basic household items required to set up an independent home. Donations made to the “SASS Women’s Rebound Program” at St. Francis House will help fund the pathway to independent living for these women and their families.

If you would like make a direct donation to one of these funds from a personal IRA account, please contact Lyn McClelland at 206.794.3032 or send her an email to learn more.
