“The Power of Education”



Monthly Giving Makes it Easy to Make a Difference

Just about every day I meet with someone who wants to support the students of YWCP in some way - as a volunteer, a donor, a board member, a mentor, etc.  It's an unbelievable feeling to know that so many people in our community wants our girls to succeed!

They know it's not only important for the girls and their families, it's critical to Rochester's future.

As YWCP continues to grow and increase the number of girls we educate, the YWCP Foundation must also grow.  The programs we provide as wrap-around services must increase to meet the changing needs of the students.  For our middle schoolers, that means creating a college-going culture and introducing them to the concept of self-respect - tools that will carry them throughout their academic journey.

For our high schoolers, the need becomes making sure they are on the right academic path to college, making good choices regarding summer learning, and taking advantages of opportunities to learn and grow in their leadership skills.  All of our programs are designed to compliment the work that the school is doing to provide a "whole girl" education that ends with one result: college graduates!

You can join our mission by supporting the YWCP Foundation with a gift of any size.  Each donation, big or small, makes an incredible impact on our ability to provide critical programs like 9th Grade Summer Bridge, Cool Women/Hot Jobs, YWCP Works, and Summer Scholarships.  Our monthly giving program makes it easy to give.  With a gift of $8.34 or more each month, your total giving impact for one year will be great than $100!  For less than the price of a movie ticket, you can make a huge difference in the life of a girl.  Members of the 834 Club make monthly automatic gifts via credit card.
