3x Match Challenge

Join us as we celebrate our birthday all May long! On May 23rd; we celebrate being a pivotal organization in our Memphis community for 103 years. We want you to join in on the excitement.

Here are 2 ways you can help us all month long.

1. Challenge the YWCA Greater Memphis Board of Directors to do more for the organization they hold dear to their hearts. The Board will TRIPLE any donation up to $103 in honor of YWCA GM’s 103rd birthday!

2. Help us redecorate! Gather your friends, colleagues, or family and raise $800 to purchase a new dresser for the YWCA Greater Memphis Domestic Violence Shelter. And in appreciation, we will personalize the dresser with an engraved nameplate as a reminder of your generosity for years to come! Check out this nameplate from a past supporter of the DV shelter.

YWCA Greater Memphis would like to express the appreciation to all those that continue to support and donate to our mission!

YWCA Greater Memphis is dedicated to eliminating racism, empowering women and promoting peace, justice, freedom, and dignity for all.

For over 100 years, we have helped women, girls, and families in West Tennessee build safer, more self-sufficient lives. We do this by operating the only 24-hour emergency shelter for those impacted by domestic violence in Shelby County. We also offer job training and financial literacy programs which help break the cycle of poverty. Our programs impact thousands each year.


If you are in danger, need to speak with an advocate, or have general questions about domestic violence, please call the YWCA’s 24-hour Crisis & Support Helpline:
