AEW has today confirmed that the company will make a $100,000 donation to Safe Alliance – a charity assisting domestic violence victims and sexual assault survivors – as part of Fight For The Fallen during this week’s Dynamite. That amount, though, is merely a minimum with a percentage of proceeds from the sale of official event t-shirts also being donated.
In a press release issued to Inside The Ropes, the company confirmed the news.
“Continuing its commitment to supporting local communities and charities, AEW announced that at the FIGHT FOR THE FALLEN event in Charlotte, N.C., this Wednesday, July 28, the company will be donating $100,000 to Safe Alliance, a non-profit organization dedicated to providing hope and healing for domestic violence and sexual assault survivors. Additionally, AEW will be donating a percentage of proceeds from the limited-edition FIGHT FOR THE FALLEN T-shirts to Safe Alliance as part of the initiative.”
The press release notes that fans can also donate directly to Safe Alliance via dedicated website with the Charlotte based charity being the latest recipient of the company’s generous spirit – which has been emphatically visible across each incarnation of Fight For The Fallen.

Safe Alliance’s Director of Corporate and Community Engagement, Tenille Alexander-Banner, said the charity is “thrilled” to partner with AEW.
“Safe Alliance is thrilled to partner with All Elite Wrestling and their annual FIGHT FOR THE FALLEN event. Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault survivors have to ‘fight’ each day to heal from the trauma and abuse they’ve endured. Without support from the community, our work would not be possible. We appreciate AEW’s generous gift and thank them for providing hope to survivors in the greater Charlotte area.”
AEW CEO Tony Khan added that community outreach is an “ongoing goal” for the company.
“Giving back to the community and helping make a difference in people’s lives is an ongoing goal for AEW, especially with our annual FIGHT FOR THE FALLEN event,” said Tony Khan, AEW CEO, GM and Head of Creative. “We’re proud to share this donation with Safe Alliance, and through this initiative, we hope we can come together with fans to further Safe Alliance’s important mission.”
