a donor circle

We support organizations that fight sex trafficking:


by preventing trafficking and raising awareness

by supporting survivors and those at risk

by identifying and prosecuting traffickers

Change a Path is a volunteer Bay Area donor circle that gives grants to not-for-profit organizations working to fight sex trafficking, both domestically and internationally.

Member contributions are pooled together and granted out to vetted anti-trafficking initiatives.

Members also participate in events with our community and our grantees to learn about addressing this critical problem.
