I was a child-bride in an abusive relationship with no way out and nowhere else to go. After each beating, I vowed to do something virtuous if I survived until graduation when I could become financially independent. The work of Futures Without Violence was the vow I made to myself. No organization has done more to reduce gender-based violence, and that’s why I’m proud to support FUTURES and the creation of the Courage Museum. FUTURES has successfully engaged problem solvers at every level of society – members of congress, judges, physicians, teachers, parents, students and professional athletes. Every gift I make to FUTURES and the Courage Museum is a gift I make to myself for my life.

Show Your Courage

Futures Without Violence has embarked on a $25 million fundraising campaign to empower new voices for violence prevention, healing, and action. 

As a donor-investor or corporate sponsor of the Courage Museum you will be aligned with a cultural institution that embodies the emerging mission of museums and cultural destinations around the world: to serve as places for critical reflection, learning, and action.

All Courage Museum investors will have the opportunity to put their indelible mark on this essential work, one that is especially crucial at a time when society needs a courageous collective effort to confront and change long-standing oppression, indignity, and inequities heightened by the continuing pandemic. 

The Courage Museum is part of the promise for a new future: a future without violence. 

“The cause speaks to my soul,” says Emily Scott, a lead investor. “And the name is perfect, the Courage Museum: courage in the face of violence.”
