It is possible to improve the lives in our community. Everyday at the YWCA of Central Virginia we see women regain control over their lives thanks to the generosity of our supporters. With your donation, we can improve our communities and help create lasting solutions to the problems of domestic violence, homelessness, and racial inequality.

One of the best ways to help right now is through a financial contribution. There are two ways to do so. You can mail your gift to:
  YWCA of Central Virginia
626 Church Street
Lynchburg, VA 24504

Since the YWCA of Central Virginia is a tax-exempt non-profit organization, 501 ( c ) (3), all charitable donations are tax-deductible.

Another way to help is through the in-kind donations. We have put together a wish list with this in mind.
