How Your Support Makes a Difference...

YWCA Cambridge works with some of the most marginalized cis & trans women and girls and non-binary and two-spirit individuals in our community. Through leadership, advocacy and programming and service delivery, we can make a real impact in this community, one life at a time.

But we need your help.

Just like each person we work with, our donation options are open to everyone. Every contribution broadens our impact and makes our community more equal. Thank you for your support.

Choose a small monthly gift, a one-time donation of any amount, or contact us to arrange an in-kind donation. Your support will be used to directly improve the lives of the people we serve.

Our Programs

We have a wide selection of programs designed to improve the lives of cis and trans women and girls and non-binary folks at The W Programming Centre. All programs are participant-led and provided free of charge, so that we can create opportunities for everyone.
