gift note:
“As a long-time volunteer, I’ve seen the amazing execution of the YWCA mission in action. The YWCA’s comprehensive approach with services like housing, job training, counseling and even food assistance, goes a long way to help families get back on their feet. I know that the YW uses money very well and that my gift will be used to carry out their mission long after I am gone. What better legacy could I leave?”
