Ways to Give

Our Wish List
Please help us continue to provide high quality and effective support that changes the college and life trajectories of low-income, first-generation-to-college students.  For a menu of specific student, programmatic, and organizational needs, please click here.

Donate Stock
Gifts of securities such as stocks, bonds, and mutual funds are especially helpful to both you and YWLN. If you’ve held the security longer than one year, you avoid paying capital gains tax and receive an income tax deduction for the current market value of the gift.

Matching Gifts
Please check with your organization’s human resources or community relations department to see if they are able to match your gift. YWLN will take care of any paperwork on our end to ensure that your donation is processed accordingly.

Visit, search for and select "Young Women's Leadership Network," and shop as normal. Amazon will donate a portion of the purchase price back to YWLN, at no extra cost to you!

Give in Tribute/Memory of Someone
A charitable donation in tribute or memory of a friend or loved one is a wonderful gift. Please note: When you make a tribute donation, the amount of your gift is shown only on your receipt. The person you designate will receive a separate acknowledgement if you indicate as such.

Corporate Giving
YWLN appreciates the generosity of so many corporations who provide much needed resources that make our work possible. There are many ways companies can partner with YWLN, from foundation and community relations giving to cause-related marketing to event sponsorships. Please contact us for more information.

Monthly Giving
YWLN students work hard all year long to achieve their college-going dreams. Make a donation that works just as hard as they do.
