Hello members and friends of CWNY!

Today is THE GLOBAL DAY OF GIVING! We thank you for supporting our mission by making a donation and/or uplifting our Giving Tuesday campaign by sharing this message and our social media posts!!!

All funds raised will help Center for the Women of New York advocate for full gender equality and empower women by offering them programs and resources to aid, uplift, and address their challenges.

To contribute to the CWNY Giving Tuesday campaign on Givesmart, please click here.

Or, to contribute to CWNY’s Facebook fundraiser, please click here. (Facebook pays all the processing fees for you, so 100% of your donation goes directly to CWNY.)

Your generosity is essential and very much appreciated! Please share with your friends and family.

The Center for the Women of New York helps women overcome financial, violence, social, wellness, and legal issues by raising awareness and advocating for full gender equality, understanding their needs, and connecting them with CWNY services, nonprofit partner organizations, and public resources to aid, uplift, and address their challenges.
