If your organization is looking for a rewarding way to come together and help people in our community at the holidays, please consider our SHYM Holiday Giving program . Your team can select to support one family or several and celebrate the holiday season by helping others.
MAKE A DONATION
Don’t have a lot of time to shop but want to make an impact? Make a direct donation to YWCA Halifax and the funds will help support this program, and so many others. On average, our holiday helpers spend $50 for each woman or family member in need over the holidays. But we are grateful for every dollar that we receive.
The YWCA Halifax relies on charitable donations and the generous support of our community.
Because of you, we are building economic security, promoting wellness, and creating opportunities for young women, girls, and their families by providing a strong voice and integrated services.
There are countless ways to give but no matter how you give or how much you give, your gift makes a difference.
