The WAVE Foundation raises awareness about the societal impact of relationship violence and sexual assault. We build community, and we fundraise to address the issue. We empower everyone, particularly youth and young adults, to recognize the warning signs of violence and to prevent its occurrence.
In the last 18 months, The WAVE Foundation has been experiencing an amazing level of growth and support for all our events and our Discover Your Power program. We hope you’ve noticed and are as excited as we are by the many ways we’re making an impact.
As a result of our growth, we are transitioning our Facebook messaging to more effectively communicate with you via our two Facebook pages.
The WAVE Foundation Facebook page will be where we post all things related to programming and the changing landscape of relationship and sexual violence awareness; this includes our Talk About It Tuesdays feature articles.
The Cycle and Walk the WAVE Facebook page will become primarily focused on the event, including articles specific to cycling and fitness.
Will we certainly continue cross posting between pages for certain topics that relate to both.
This evolution has begun, and we’d be grateful if you would take a minute to ‘like‘ and share The WAVE Foundation Facebook page.
As an added incentive, anyone who ‘likes’ The WAVE Foundation Facebook page between today and August 25 will be entered into a drawing to win a Bikerchick Necklace..

For 2017 the 4th annual Scott Shively Memorial Golf Tournament will be supporting The WAVE Foundation’s efforts to raise awareness about the problems of sexual assault and domestic violence.
This 4th annual tournament honors Scott, who as a college International Relations/Social Justice major lived his life with purpose and integrity and took action as a bystander when he saw the call to need. His adult life was cut short, but we want to honor his memory for the bravery and courage he showed in the time he was present and that his actions made a difference.
Because of Scott’s, as well as his family’s interest in local Northwest efforts to raise awareness about women’s issues including domestic violence, the WAVE Foundation has been designated as a beneficiary of this tournament.
An anonymous donor will match $1,000 of donations made to The WAVE Foundation!
Everyone is welcome to golf at this fun, low-key event.

Welcome to The WAVE Foundation’s updated website!
The WAVE Foundation has undergone significant growth the past 12 months and we’re excited to have a website that remains content rich while more accurately reflecting all the work we’re doing to raise Awareness, create Community and enable Empowerment in our work to end domestic violence and sexual assault.
Our educational awareness program Discover Your Power has gained traction across the region. Since the beginning of the 2016/2017 school year we’ve taught over 85 sessions in Elementary, Middle, High Schools, and College Campus’ and Women service agencies. This represents over 3,000 individuals of all genders who now know how to trust their intuition, help a friend, be an active bystander, and how to feel confident and prepared for anything with a few essential self-defense moves. More importantly these 3,000+ individuals are now part of our strong community, sharing the knowledge we gave them with their peers to affect change.
Our primary event Cycle and Walk the WAVE turns 10 this September! We are busy adding new sponsors and elements to celebrate this milestone anniversary. We hope you and your friends will join us on September 17, 2017 at Bellevue College.
Subscribe to our Facebook page and stay tuned for more exciting news from The WAVE Foundation in the next few weeks in regards to new partnerships that are focused on increasing our reach and impact.
We’re Against Violence Everywhere. Because it Can Happen to Anyone!
