For over 100 years, YWCA South Florida has been on a mission to eliminate racism, empower women and promote peace, justice, freedom and dignity for all

But we can’t do it alone. Together, we can amplify our time, resources, knowledge and, most of all, impact to make a difference in the lives of our community. Together, we are even more driven to get up and do the work until injustice is rooted out, until institutions are transformed, until the world sees women, girls and people of color the way we do: Equal. Powerful. Unstoppable.

With an annual gift of $1,000 or more, you’ll become a part of our Women’s Empowerment Giving Circle and you’ll do so much more:

  • Cover the cost to send two women through our WE360 program designed to help women of color overcome barriers to starting, growing and sustaining businesses while providing them with educational tools to increase their knowledge and confidence as entrepreneurs.
  • Offset the cost to provide 13 children with a positive and nurturing environment in our Court Care program while families attend court proceedings.
  • Sponsor the cost of providing a breast and cervical cancer screening to 20 women in the South Florida community.
  • Balance the cost of providing life-enriching experiences for two teens living in low-resourced neighborhoods through after-school and summer programming.
