Help Us Continue Meeting the Match
YWCA Carlisle thanks everyone who participated in last year’s Challenge Grant through the Greater Harrisburg Foundation, a regional foundation of The Foundation For Enhancing Communities. This grant allowed us to raise funds in return for a $3-to-$1 match. Only new and increased gifts to YWCA Carlisle qualified for the match and helped to make a deeper impact on the agency’s mission to eliminate racism and empower women and girls.
Support Our Annual Fund
We are currently in our Annual Fund Appeal mode which helps to support all the costs of the organization that aren’t covered by grants, program fees, and corporate gifts.
Annual Fund contributions ensure the long-term sustainability of YWCA Carlisle. Please keep in mind that we are striving to maintain our growth from last year as part of recognizing new and increased contributions to our Annual Fund matched through the Challenge grant.
Wish List Items
YWCA Carlisle is continually grateful for the generosity of our Cumberland County community, and we still need your support. In order to meet the most pressing needs in the community, we maintain a “wish list” of items that can be uses in our preschool classrooms, for youth programming, or provide for clients.
Diapers (all sizes) - Preschool and Gather The Women programs
Underwear (all sizes girls and women) - Sexual Assault/Rape Crisis Services program
Gift cards of $10 to stores or restaurants - Youth programs
Small, sturdy bookshelf - Preschool program
Digital camera - General use
Office chair with wheels - General use
Each November, YWCA Carlisle offers the community an opportunity to sponsor a ceramic angel ornament that is displayed on a holiday tree in our lobby. The angel ornaments can be purchased in honor of or in memory of an individual, and the name is clearly noted on the Angel when it is placed on the tree. Handwritten thank you notes are sent to our generous donors, along with an acknowledgement letter that is mailed to the honoree that invites them to view their angel. This is a great opportunity to honor a loved one, and provides an excellent opportunity to make an year-end tax-deductible gift as well!
