Investing in the Long-Term Sustainability of Doorways
Why We Give: Judy & Kevin Moak
“We feel so lucky to be able to give a planned gift to Doorways in honor of my mom and her many years of assisting women experiencing domestic violence. This gift is not about our family’s legacy; it is about helping people out of life’s difficulties by investing in the long-term sustainability of Doorways — an amazing organization that quite literally changes people’s lives in positive ways that matter every single day.”

The Moak-Fiske Prevention Innovation and Investment Gift
Doorways’ Prevention Program was launched by the $300,000 Moak-Fiske Prevention Innovation and Investment Gift. This extraordinary gift, which includes $50,000 in matching funds, is the first of its kind in Doorways’ history. This gift was given by Kevin Moak and Judy Fiske Moak in honor of Kevin’s mother, Evelyn Arnold Moak, and her lifelong passion for helping the most vulnerable in the community.
“My mom had an amazing level of energy that she channeled into advocacy work related to early childhood education, adult mental health, and support for victims of domestic abuse and sexual assault. We are thrilled to be able to honor her legacy by helping Doorways create and launch the Prevention Program which is a vital step toward lessening the incidence of violence in our community. We encourage and welcome others to join us in ensuring the success of this important program.”
Doorways thanks the Moaks for their game-changing support, and for their daring insight to invest in helping Doorways move upstream to prevent violence in our community.
