At Fig, we envision a different kind of publication….one that energizes a thriving, sustainable local economy. We believe in the power of creative thinking to transform a community.
For us this means finding ways to support non-profit organizations that foster creativity and educate people about the power of innovation as foundations for a vibrant city. We believe that awareness of opportunities helps people to make informed personal choices or to find the encouragement they need to make a difference.
We have created partnerships with local non-profits whose missions support this goal. These organizations are making a difference in the Doylestown community. Individually, they offer opportunities for enrichment and education. Together, they strengthen the fabric of our community.
Sparked by this greater purpose, Fig aims to demonstrate mutually beneficial ways that we can work together and empower positive change. Make a choice to support a creative community and help build healthy, productive lives.
2015 Social Mission Partner:
A Woman's Place
ON THE ROAD TO FLOURISHING A Woman’s Place (AWP) is the only domestic violence organization in Bucks County. Approaching their 40th year, they provide comprehensive free, private, and confidential service, support, education, outreach, and advocacy to victims of domestic violence and their children and the community. A Woman’s Place is committed to the empowerment of women and to ending intimate and domestic violence for all—not just in times of crisis but throughout the rebuilding process.
“Domestic violence is not just a family issue. It’s a community issue, and our goal is to educate and change the cultural dynamic to build a community where lives can flourish in safety,” says Communications Manager Mike Hicks.
In Full Swing, a thrift shop benefitting A Woman’s Place, is one of the finest examples of community partnership. Newly established in the heart of the borough, its success is fully supported by the generosity of volunteers, donors, and customers.
“The organization is about more than temporarily helping someone,” says Executive Director Ifeoma U. Aduba (Ify), “It’s about helping them grow into living a more sustainable life. It’s important to value each individual life and recognize that when bad things happen, you’ve built a culture in the community ready to respond. If we succeed at what we’re doing, the community will hold each other up and our job will be done."
