This year, our Board of Directors is matching every gift up to $15,000! Your donation will be DOUBLED, generating twice the impact.

YWCA Dayton continues to remain open and available 24/7/365 to shelter and serve the most vulnerable among us: survivors of intimate-partner violence; women transitioning out of homelessness; women and families in need of safe, supportive housing.

Your support ensures these critical safety nets continue, uninterrupted. Thank you for continuing to be On a Mission with us.

I believe YWCA Dayton is the safest place I could be right now. It is my home, it is my family, and I feel supported and cared for within these walls. Thank you for all that you do.

Created by the team at the Belfer Center for Innovation & Social Impact at the “92nd Street Y — a cultural center in New York City that, since 1874, has been bringing people together around the values of service and giving back — #GivingTuesday connects diverse groups of individuals, communities, and organizations around the world for one common purpose: to celebrate and encourage giving.

#GivingTuesday harnesses the potential of social media and the generosity of people around the world to bring about real change in their communities; it provides a platform for them to encourage the donation of time, resources, and talents to address local challenges. It also brings together the collective power of a unique blend of partners — nonprofits, civic organizations, businesses and corporations, as well as families and individuals — to encourage and amplify small acts of kindness.

As a global movement, #GivingTuesday unites countries around the world by sharing our capacity to care for and empower one another.
