YWCA USA is on a mission to eliminate racism, empower women, stand up for social justice, help families, and strengthen communities. We are one of the oldest and largest women’s organizations in the nation, serving over 2 million women, girls, and their families.

YWCA has been at the forefront of the most pressing social movements for more than 150 years — from voting rights to civil rights, from affordable housing to pay equity, from violence prevention to health care reform. Today, we combine programming and advocacy in order to generate institutional change in three key areas: racial justice and civil rights, empowerment and economic advancement of women and girls, and health and safety of women and girls.

Donate to the YWCA USA

Could you provide a week’s worth (or a month) of shelter to a woman and her children?

Donations of any amount help us carry out our critical mission, and we are so appreciative of all gifts received at the YWCA St. Joseph. A $1,000 donation would provide a month of safe shelter, meals and counseling to a woman trying to start a new life for herself and her children.

As another example, a gift of $250 can provide a week’s worth of shelter, meals and counseling to a woman and her children.

Donations of $100 or more qualify for a 50% State of Missouri tax credit among others. For example, did you know that a $500 donation to the YWCA equates to a $420 total tax credit across federal and state sources? (Yes, $500 donated is really $80 out of pocket, depending on your tax bracket!)
