Partner with us!
YWCA has a history of successfully fighting for social justice and leading social change— from voting rights to civil rights, from affordable housing to pay equity, from violence prevention to health care.
Over the last 10 years, YWCA has grown significantly, deepening its impact by delivering innovative programs that support our core mission. We’ve expanded our geographic reach, launched 15 new programs, renovated our facilities, and built a new emergency domestic violence shelter which doubles the number of survivors that we can serve.
Our impact is even greater because of our collaborations with corporate partners who share our commitment to ending racism and empowering women.
Partner with us today! Your corporate partnership will increase your reputation leadership, increase your social impact, and increase employee engagement.
Together, we can build a win-win-win partnership that will benefit your business, YWCA Evanston North Shore, and the women and families we serve.

“In light of the tragic death of Ricky Byrdsong, there is something special about bringing employees together on Father’s Day to demonstrate that love, community, and kindness is more powerful than hate.” – Steve Hagerty, Hagerty Consulting, Race Against Hate Sponsor
Many employers offer matching gift programs through which the company will make a separate gift that is equal, double, or even triple the amount of your gift. You can use the search engine below to see if your company has a matching gift program. It will also direct you to any forms you may need to fill out, and let you know which gifts apply for matching.
You can also contact your company’s Human Resources Department to learn more about your employer’s matching gift program. If available, they will provide you with the necessary forms to be completed and submitted along with your gift. One-time gifts, gifts of securities, and tributes and special gifts are all eligible for matching funds from employers.
We can provide meaningful volunteer opportunities for your employees. Individuals or groups can participate in one-time service days, or ongoing volunteer board service. We are especially interested in matching the skills of your employees with the needs of hose we serve.
