We need YOUR support!
The YWCP Foundation provides the additional resources the school needs to fulfill its promise of college for every student. By providing the funds to provide summer learning opportunities, to create a college-going culture, and offer teacher development in single-gender education, we are providing the "special sauce" that makes YWCP unique. But we can't do it without you!

Ways to Give
There are many ways to give to YWCP and the needs are great. Here are a few ways that a gift of any size can make a big impact on our students. YWCP is a 501(c)3 organization and your gift is tax deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law. All contributions are acknowledged. Thank you for your support!
A gift of any amount can be designated to support one of these critical program needs:

- Best in Girls' Education – gifts in this area provide professional development opportunities for our teachers to enrich their teaching and leadership. Gifts also provide Teacher Grants, a competitive process in which teachers can apply for funding to help bring their curriculum to life in or out of the classroom.
- Summer Learning – gifts in this area will provide enrichment opportunities to keep our students engaged over summer break, decrease summer learning loss, decrease dropout rates, and increase graduation rates. Key programs include summer scholarships and 9th Grade Summer Bridge at RIT.
Give in Honor/Memory of Someone Special
