Holiday Giving

Believe in change and possibility
for yourself and for our community.

Your investment in YWCA St. Paul helps break down barriers and supports women, children and families in our community.

We are so grateful for your support of our mission of eliminating racism and empowering women this holiday season, and right now, you can double your impact by becoming a new donor or increasing your previous gift amount, thanks to matching grants from The Katherine B. Andersen Fund of The Saint Paul Foundation and the Mardag Foundation.

For people who feel like they’re stuck, like there’s nothing more that they can do, no direction they can go, programs like this one give you an opening. They give you so many different ways to think about things if you need to find something in yourself that you’re unsure of. I learned that I’m strong and that I can find that strength inside myself. I learned how to not put myself down and found ways to lift myself up.

Your generosity funds:

  • Programs that equip unemployed and under-employed individuals with the skills and knowledge to obtain in-demand jobs and support themselves and their families.
  • Housing services that offer time for families experiencing homelessness to overcome financial setbacks, decrease their reliance on emergency services and learn to be good renters.
  • Empowering young people to believe in themselves, in their voices and in their potential and worth.
  • Wellness programs and facilities to strengthen health and quality of life.

Thank you!

P.S. If you’re looking for a meaningful holiday gift, consider a donation dedicated to a special person in your life who cares about our mission.
