There are so many occasions, milestones and deserving friends and family worthy of inspired giving! Your thoughtful gift is a life-changing gesture for women, girls and gender diverse individuals in need.

Mother’s Day, Valentine’s Day, International Women’s Day (IWD), Seasonal Holidays – you can celebrate your loved ones during the important holidays in your lives by honouring them with a donation in their name.
Donate in honour now.

Occasions such as birthdays, weddings, anniversaries and graduations are great opportunities to make special days even more meaningful. A gift to YWCA Toronto programs is a wonderful way to celebrate important milestones. You can honour a special person or celebrate a loved one by making a donation in their name. Give a donation as a gift or if you’re hosting a celebration, encourage your friends and family to make a donation in your name to YWCA Toronto instead of buying you a gift.
Celebrate with a donation now.
