Give a Gift in Honour or in Memory

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 and girls in need.

You can honour the (s)heroes, helpers, feminists, family and people you love with a donation in their name in lieu of a gift. What better way to recognize the important people in your life and give a gift that also helps women and children who face marginalization in our community.

Family Day, Valentine’s Day, International Women’s Day, Mother’s Day, seasonal holidays, and more — 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 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 are hosting a celebration, encourage your friends and family to make a donation in your name to YWCA Toronto instead of buying you a gift.

Give in memory
Memorial donations are a significant way for you to remember someone special, tell others how much this person meant to you and contribute to transforming the lives of women and girls.

For all gifts in honour or in memory, YWCA Toronto can mail or email a greeting card on your behalf to the honouree or their family to let them know of your gift — the gift amount will not be included in the card. A tax receipt will be issued directly to you.
