A Call to Men, a national men's leadership organization based in New York, is requiring men and boys to have a primary voice and responsibility in the work to address violence against women and girls. A project of the Tides Center, A Call to Men was founded by Ted Bunch and Tony Porter - both educators, authors and activists addressing issues of violence and male socialization.
The organization offers free downloadable curriculum for middle and high school students which can complement existing mentoring programs for boys. In addition, they offer training, special events and engagements with the goal of creating a responsible community of men who have been socialized to value women and girls and who are committed to keeping them safe.

When I begin a new consulting engagement with a nonprofit, no matter how long it's been in operation, I assess their readiness for funding using the Community Foundation for Greater Atlanta's "Six Areas of Success" guide. Read more about best practices for nonprofit Strategic Planning, Governance, Human Resources, Fiscal Management, Partnerships and Program Management to help your organization will be better able to make a case for support from Foundations, Corporations and Individual Donors.
On September 1st, join the free webinar, hosted by the Knight Foundation and Markets for Good, as a panel discusses the new report released this month. Beyond the Dollars: The Long-Term Value of Giving Days for Community Foundations.
The focus of the discussion centers on additional benefits realized through giving day events beyond the donations, including an ability to tap into more online donors, and making philanthropy accessible to more people at various giving level. The panel will share insights on how organizations can use giving days to grow digital skills and gather data useful in building their capacity to advance their missions.
