Empowering women for over 160 years, dedicated to 160 more.
Your gift means more now than ever.
As public health and safety concerns surrounding COVID-19 continue, your support of YWCA MV has an even more significant impact. Social distancing and isolation have led to one of the busiest years in our history, as demand for our life-saving services nearly doubled from 2019. No matter what, our staff are still working 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year to provide essential support for our community.
Thank you for your consideration and giving what you can. Your support in any form or amount is integral to helping advance our mission to eliminate racism and empower women.

Ways to Give
Whether it’s providing safety for our clients in shelter, stability for families in transitional housing, comfort for children at the Child Advocacy Center, or advocacy for survivors throughout the Mohawk Valley, your gift makes a difference.
Online giving is the fastest way to make an impact on our community, going directly to the area of greatest need, or to a program of your choice.
If you prefer not to use an online giving platform, we understand! We also accept donations by mail. Checks and Money Orders must be made payable to “YWCA Mohawk Valley.”
Please mail your donation to:

Other Ways to Support
Double your donation with a Matching Gift!
Many companies locally and nationally have gift matching programs that amplify the impact of their employees’ personal contributions without increasing the obligation of the individual donor. Most participating companies will match employee gifts dollar-for-dollar, while some will even double- or triple-match a gift. In addition to matching charitable donations of their employees, some companies will also match donations made by spouses, retirees, and members of their Board of Directors.
Tribute gifts provide a wonderful and meaningful way to honor someone, commemorate a special occasion, or memorialize a loved one. If you would like to make a tribute gift online, please include the following information in the Message section of the donation form:
- The name of the person(s) you are recognizing
- The occasion (if applicable)
- Their address if you would like them to receive a letter informing them of your gift
Planned giving allows you to make a lasting impact on your community through YWCA MV. If you are having a will prepared for the first time or revising your existing will, you can easily add a provision for YWCA MV. Your attorney can draft a codicil (a supplement) to your existing will that is otherwise satisfactory in all ways.
For more information on either of these, please contact Kari Procopio at email@example.com or 315.732.2159 ext. 233.
