We work hard to secure grants and private funds to maintain the quality of our programs and services, but there are always incidental expenses or special needs that those sources just can’t cover. That’s why we so appreciate our members and donors who help us bridge the gap and provide our clients with what’s necessary to make them feel supported, safe and empowered.  YWCA Lewiston, ID-Clarkston, WA is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.  Your donations are tax deductible as allowable by law.

Donate in Person

Whether you are donating supplies or paying it forward with a monetary investment, we love making a connection with you. Stop by and make a donation in person at (or mail to)  300 Main Street, Lewiston, ID 83501.

Recurring Giving

Maybe you’re a person who likes to set it and forget it, if that sounds like you we’d love to have you set up a recurring donation. There’s nothing simpler than a one-time sign up that keeps the giving rolling forward, and even a donation  of $5 a month (which these days is probably less than you spend a month on coffee!) can make a huge difference in the lives of the folks we serve.

Give in Memoriam

Many families encourage donations in lieu of flowers at their loved one’s funeral, and see it as a fitting way to honor those close to them, while supporting a cause dear to their heart. If we receive donations with a notice that they are being made in memory of someone, we not only send you our normal thank you note but also a note of sympathy to the loved one(s) who, we know, appreciate seeing the legacy of generosity.

Estate Planning

If you are planning your estate, please consider leaving at least 5% to the YWCA of Lewiston-Clarkston Fund at Innovia Foundation. The fund will be used to provide support to the YWCA of Lewiston-Clarkston for charitable, educational and scientific purposes in perpetuity.

By committing to leave at least 5% of our wealth to local organizations like the YWCA of Lewiston-Clarkston, we can make sure our personal investment continues to grow after we are gone. Whether it is through your will or a simple beneficiary designation, planning now to support the YWCA of Lewiston-Clarkston Fund can create your charitable legacy with a transformational and lasting impact.
