The Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network (RAINN) is the nation's largest anti-sexual violence organization.
Every two minutes, someone in the U.S. is sexually assaulted. One in six women in America will be a victim of sexual violence in her lifetime as will one in 10 men. Sexual violence is one of the most underreported crimes — 15 of 16 rapists will never spend a day in jail.
RAINN operates the National Sexual Assault Hotline at 1.800.656.HOPE and the National Sexual Assault Online Hotline at rainn.org, and publicizes the hotlines' free, confidential services; educates the public about sexual violence; and leads national efforts to prevent sexual violence, improve services to victims and ensure that rapists are brought to justice. Learn more at rainn.org.
Since RAINN’s inception in 1994, the National Sexual Assault Hotline and Online Hotline have helped over 1.6 million survivors of sexual violence through live, one-one-one support, available 24/7. RAINN’s prevention and education efforts include working with the entertainment industry, the media, colleges and local communities to help raise awareness about issues related to sexual violence — reaching over 120 million Americans each year. RAINN also works closely with key members of Congress on important anti-rape legislation to improve services to victims and ensure that rapists are brought to justice.
RAINN is committed to meeting the highest standards of fiscal management, program effectiveness, and governance. In fact, Worth magazine named RAINN one of "America's 100 Best Charities". 92¢ of every dollar goes directly to helping victims and preventing sexual violence. Just $10 will enable one survivor to get the support that they need and deserve. Learn more about where your money goes.
