As a privately funded non-profit charity, every dollar we receive is carefully allocated to do the most good.

As a secondary goal, Escape to Better Foundation educates the friends, families and workplaces of victim-survivors of abuse so they are better equipped to support their loved ones.

We need your help to achieve these goals and there are many ways you can assist us.

That’s why our focus is on pre-crisis intervention. It means we can guide and support victims of domestic violence and intimate partner abuse as they plan and implement a sustainable escape from their abuser.

This helps to minimise the trauma and empowers people experiencing domestic abuse in all its forms.


Your donation (big or small) will help victims of abuse access our online resources to receive guidance on how to:

  • Stay safe
  • Decide to leave
  • Plan and implement their escape
  • Rebuild their lives

You can securely make your donation here.

Buy our book


Celebrate the quiet strength and determination of women from across the world and all walks of life. This is a collaborative book written by 45 women who boldly and sincerely share their doubts, heartaches, joys and life lessons.

On page 17, our co-founder talks about how she felt in the hours and weeks immediately after her life partner threatened her with physical abuse. She also reveals the moment she knew, “I’ve got this!”

Buy a copy for yourself, your friends or multiple copies to give to your favourite shelter or charity. All proceeds of this book will support the Escape to Better Foundation.

Volunteer your
time & expertise

As a small charitable organisation, we rely on the expertise of others to assist us in our operations, marketing, fundraising and program implementation. Our volunteers include individuals, workplaces and community groups who are passionate about making a difference to the lives and outcomes of victim-survivors of domestic violence.

Please get in touch if you would like to help us support victims of domestic violence, financial abuse and intimate partner abuse.

Engage Karen to present at your event or workplace

Have you ever wondered why victims of domestic violence take so long to leave their partners?

From her lived experience, presentations by Karen Anderson will give you a totally different perspective on what it’s like to be abused by a life partner. She’ll reveal the many ways perpetrators of abuse use their employer’s resources to intimidate and stalk their victims. Karen will also discuss the challenges victim-survivors face, the life lessons she learned and the insights she gained as a result of her abuse.

All proceeds from Karen’s presentations go directly to Escape to Better Foundation. You can learn more about her presentations here.
