Dear Community Partner,

You have the power to foster healing and build safety for child survivors of sexual trauma.

Your sponsorship of our annual fundraiser, the Soulfire Gala, will provide critical funds to support the holistic healing services we offer child survivors of sexual trauma and their families in the tri-county area. You will have a hand in creating a space where more children can declare:

“I’m better because of therapy and I am no longer afraid.”

Founded in 2013 by nationally recognized, Black survivor activist, Tashmica Torok, The Firecracker Foundation provides comprehensive services for children who have experienced sexual violence and their families. In the 8 years since TFF was founded, it has gained national attention within the movement to end child sexual abuse for our collective expertise, justice-centered approaches, and survivor-led organizing efforts. 

Please elevate the voices of survivors by pledging to sponsor Soulfire 2021 today!

Soulfire is a community awareness project that shares the diversity of survivor experiences through artistic expression. This year, we have transitioned the multimedia art project to highlight digital art that will maximize the impact of the storytelling and increase accessibility for members of our global community. The event will be broadcast LIVE across multiple platforms and include sign language interpretation significantly increasing the number of people who have the opportunity to participate.

On Thursday, November 18, 2021, from 6 p.m. – 8 p.m., join community leaders, business owners, nonprofit partners, artists, community organizers, activists, donors, and key volunteers as we come together in a virtual celebration of the hard-won progress we’ve made towards a safer, more healed community.

It is our goal to offer you a sponsorship packet that will help your small business or corporation meet strategic goals and provide sustainable, multi-year sponsorship relationships that will fund our critical work.

Below is a list of Soulfire sponsorship perks. Please email us at and we’ll follow up with you to answer questions and discuss your potential support of this powerful community gathering.
