Donate

We know our mission and our work is as critical now as it has ever been.  We know it’s going to take all of us. It’s going to take YOU. Your donation and continued connection sustains YWCA Olympia’s commitment to supporting and empowering the 13,000 individuals who come through our doors each day, as well as our efforts to advocate for systemic change to make our local, state and national community a more equitable place for all.

How? Your $60 contribution buys menstrual products for a person for one year.  $120 pays for one middle school youth to attend a STEAM camp on a Saturday for a year. $500 provides on-site, trauma-informed job training to help a someone gain the skills and resources they need to gain employment to ensure financial stability. Your contribution supports real possibility for our community. Every day
