Support The Lilac Tree today!

We've served nearly 10,000 individuals since our inception. We know of no other organization in the country that addresses the breadth of issues people face in divorce. And we know from experience what those issues are.

I developed and continue to have friendships with some interesting, strong women whom I otherwise may never have met. That is why I continue to support and donate to this extraordinary organization. I know the support and dollars we give work their magic in their own way to each new client The Lilac Tree continues to serve.

Our Annual Fund is the root of our organization. It provides unrestricted gifts that help The Lilac Tree throughout the year. Your gift ensures that The Lilac Tree advances its Mission and Vision to continue serving individuals and families through their divorce process.



The Ila Chaiken Scholarship Fund, named in honor of our long-time counselor, Ila Chaiken, was established specifically to provide fee assistance, scholarships and programs to low income women and/or financially distraught (abused) women.
