Ten of the survivors currently living in shelter are continuing to go to work each day because the work they do is considered essential in this time of crisis. Not only can they not shelter in place in their own homes, they are out helping their communities in times of extraordinary need.


We’re still here for you.

Legacy giving in a time of uncertainty

As devastating as COVID-19 is, a few silver linings shine through—our renewed focus on family, friends and those things we care about most.

Another silver lining is the gift of time. Time to think, and plan for the future. Many people are using this time to provide for their family’s future and support what matters most to them, by creating a will or estate plan.

Whether you already have a will, or you’re creating one now, we invite you to join the YWCA Legacy Circle. It’s easy to join—simply let us know of your intention to include a bequest gift to YWCA Evanston/North Shore in your will or estate plans.

Bequests—gifts that are given through wills—are the simplest and most common type of estate planning you can do.  It costs you nothing today, and you can change your mind at any time.

By joining the YWCA Legacy Circle, you ensure that your passion and commitment to supporting domestic violence survivors, vulnerable families, racial justice and/or aquatics will continue. Your bequest gift to YWCA continues your passion and creates your legacy.
