Support our Mission
The Beacon is providing a more effective way for women to recover from trauma, substance use, and mental illness. You can be a part of this movement in Iowa: healthier individuals, happier families, and better communities – for all of us.
Investing in change.
When you support The Beacon, you are agreeing that the women we serve are not criminal; rather, due to trauma and systemic inequities, they are carrying a load too heavy for a human to hold. You are agreeing that these women have a better chance at success through support rather than punishment and that the next generation will benefit because of it.

More ways to support our mission:
We have aligned our financial investments with our mission by partnering with the Community Foundation & Wealth Consulting Group to ensure that our endowment fund is invested in companies that prioritize social responsibility and pursuing equity. Your contribution to our endowment fund ensures a consistent stream of support for operational expenses and the long-term sustainability of our organization.
We are always in need of these staples:
- white copy paper
- toilet paper
- cleaning supplies
- dish/laundry soap
- new underwear and bras
- *Clothing or household items can be donated to Dress for Success or St. Vincent de Paul as our clients receive free items from both organizations.
By sponsoring our annual fundraiser, Cake Gala, you can invest in our community, receive free tickets and other perks, AND gain exposure for your business with an audience that will appreciate your generosity.
