Give Help

image description

Whether you help house a struggling woman or encourage a young girl's dream, your gift makes a difference in someone’s life.

Your investment provides essential resources like housing, education, and access to health care. It allows us to raise our voice against deep and pervasive racial disparities that cut through our community. And it helps awaken lost dreams. Last year, more than 39,000 women and families were helped along life’s way by YWCA Greater Pittsburgh. 

Please give today – you can give knowing that you are helping a woman be strong for herself and for her family.

The Liz Prine Fund

Elizabeth Erskine Prine was known for her aggressive, hands-on approach to empowering women. We believe the YW should immerse itself in the economic, racial and social problems that deprive women – young and old – from sharing in life’s opportunities. The Liz Prine Fund advances these ideals.
