YWCA USA is on a mission to eliminate racism, empower women, stand up for social justice, help families, and strengthen communities. For over 160 years we’ve been at the forefront of the most pressing social movements — from voting rights to civil rights, from affordable housing to pay equity, from violence prevention to health care reform. We combine programming and advocacy in order to generate institutional change in three key areas: racial justice and civil rights, empowerment and economic advancement and health and safety of women and girls.

Your donation to YWCA USA will strengthen our support for associations around the country and fund robust advocacy efforts to educate and partner with lawmakers on policies that advance our critical mission of eliminating racism and empowering women.

Donate to YWCA USA

YWCA has over 200 local associations all over the United States. These local associations are the heart of our organization and move the needle on eliminating racism and empowering women every day by meeting needs in their communities. From running emergency shelters to holding candidate forums on racial profiling and the criminalization of girls and women of color, YWCA local associations are putting our mission into action around the country.

Thank you for choosing to support a local YWCA. Your support is critical for the programs and services that local YWCAs provide in their communities!
