1902: A YWCA Giving Community

Eliminating racism and empowering women depends on steady, reliable support from committed advocates like you.

Join 1902, our automated monthly giving program, to provide ongoing, sustaining support of YWCA Central Carolinas' mission and programs!

Why 1902?

The name 1902 celebrates the year of YWCA Central Carolinas’ founding. For more than a century, YWCA has been committed to social justice, and 1902 members join YWCA in this commitment.

How does it work?

As a member of 1902, you will contribute to YWCA’s mission to eliminate racism and empower women all year long via automatic monthly giving. When you sign up, the amount you specify will be billed to your credit card each month. YWCA will provide one gift acknowledgment for your taxes at the end of the calendar year, or you can request to receive gift acknowledgment each month.

As a member of 1902, you will enjoy:
  • Regular advocacy updates and engagement opportunities on issues of racial and social justice.
  • Opportunities to network with others who share your passion to eliminate racism, empower women and promote peace, justice, freedom and dignity for all.
  • Access to group volunteer projects (when COVID precautions are lifted and YWCA is able to bring volunteers back onsite safely).
