Become a SPONSOR!

Over the past two decades, our Domestic Violence Shelter has been a beacon of hope for those
experiencing violence in their homes in Muscatine County. Thanks to the generous support of
organizations like yours, we have been able to serve our community and remain one of the few domestic
violence shelters in Iowa.

Regrettably, due to the challenges posed by the Covid-19 pandemic, our annual New Beginnings Gala
was put on hold for three years (2020-2022). While we were able to return in 2023, this hiatus has
resulted in a budgetary deficit that directly impacts the crucial programs we provide to survivors. We are
reaching out to valued partners like you to help us remedy this deficit and ensure the continued success of
our programs for years to come.

In 2024, our fundraising goal for the New Beginnings Gala is set at over $200,000. This funding is
essential to keeping the doors of our Domestic Violence Shelter open for future survivors, providing a
safe haven and support when they need it the most.

We believe that with your support, we can make this gala a resounding success. By becoming an official
sponsor, your company will have the opportunity to decide on the sponsorship level that aligns with your
philanthropic goals. In return, we will prominently showcase your company as an official sponsor during
the event and express our gratitude by providing complimentary tickets.

To express your interest in becoming an official sponsor, please complete the attached sponsorship form
and return it to MCSA by March 1st, 2024. For any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact Nik
Horn at or 319-768-9432.

We are truly excited about the possibility of your organization joining us as a sponsor for this milestone
event. Your support will not only contribute to the success of the gala but will also play a crucial role in
sustaining the services we provide to survivors in our community.
