Gifts to the YWCA Friends Fund are an important part of our annual budget. Donations to this fund cover many of our operating expenses.
Make a donation in any amount to any department or program you choose. You can also choose to donate to the YWCA USA to support the YWCA’s mission on a national level.
Your employer may match your donation to the YWCA. Check with your HR office to find out if your employer participates.
United Way Allocation
The United Way of Adams County allows donors to designate gifts to the YWCA Gettysburg & Adams County using your United Way pledge card.
The Endowment Fund
Money in our Endowment Fund builds interest and generates revenue for each year. Donations can be made in honor or in memory of family, friends, or loved ones.
The Danner Society
The Danner Society is a special group of donors who include the YWCA in their wills or estate plans. Planned gifts can include cash, assets, property, life insurance, IRAs and other retirement funds, charitable remainder trusts, or annuities.
Transfer of Appreciated Assets
Stocks or other investment funds that have been held for more than one year and have grown in value can provide a substantial gift to the YWCA at a low net cost to you.
Donate your mandatory minimum IRA distribution to the YWCA.
All planned gifts should be discussed with your financial advisor and the YWCA to ensure maximum benefit to both parties.
Donate Your Car
Both you and the YWCA can benefit from your donation of your used vehicle: you get the tax deduction, we get the proceeds from the sale to support our community programs.
You may also donate at the YWCA Service Desk, or send your donation to:
