Individual Giving

Individual Giving

Donors throughout our community help us ensure that cis and trans women and girls and non- binary and two spirit individuals have access to our programs at no cost. Without our incredible donors, this would not be possible. We welcome, and depend on, the support of philanthropic gifts to continue our work. All monetary donations will be issued a tax receipt and invested directly into our programs to support cis and trans women and girls and non-binary folks. You can make a one-time donation today, for yourself or to honour someone special in your life.

Monthly Gifts

Considering a monthly gift is one of the most effective and generous ways to help us make long plans for the future of our work. By making a monthly commitment your support will add up to a big impact, helping us ensure sustainability by providing ongoing support to our programs and the people who benefit from them.

As a monthly donor, you will receive regular updates on the impact of your support, as well as a consolidated annual tax receipt. Monthly giving is affordable and flexible. You can select any amount to contribute each month and modify your gift at any time by contacting us directly. Your monthly donation gives us the ability to plan ahead and invest in long-term solutions to meet the specific needs of our community. Make a one-time or a monthly gift now!

Workplace Giving

Employees can make a difference in their local community by engaging their workplaces to contribute alongside them. Here are some of the ways that your dollars can go further with the help of your organization.

Payroll Deduction

Many companies offer automatic payroll deduction programs which is an easy way for employees to get involved and make a difference in the community. If your workplace offers a charitable giving program, we hope you’ll select YWCA Cambridge as your charity of choice!

Matching Gifts

Many companies will match the donations made by employees, which can double or even triple the impact of the gifts you are giving! Ask your employer if they participate in a matching gift program. If they do, please find out how to apply for matching funds and multiply the impact of your gift to empower, embolden and protect the lives of women and girls in our community.

Talk to your HR department today to find out more about your workplace giving programs!

Legacy Giving

We all have a legacy to leave and a story to tell. By including YWCA Cambridge in your personal legacy, your impact will live on forever.

Legacy giving, most commonly through a bequest in your will allows us to create a long-term plan of sustainability and ensure that our work will continue for decades to come. By choosing to include a gift in your will, you can help to ensure a future in which all women and girls in our community have access to innovative and responsive programs, services and advocacy.

Choosing to leave a lasting legacy with YWCA Cambridge is easy and does not have to impact your currently lifestyle. Your impact can live on to lead and inspire future generations.

Please let us know when you plan a legacy gift for our work. Knowing helps us to plan for the future and allows us to honour you in your lifetime. Please fill out our Legacy Gift Confirmation Form, which can be used to advise that a future gift has been planned and to further discuss the intentions of your gift. For all pertinent information about YWCA Cambridge to set up your legacy gift, please refer to the Bequest Form

For more information about legacy giving with the YWCA Cambridge, please contact Caroline Barker at or (519) 267-644
