YWCA Pasadena-Foothill Valley

Van Fundraiser

Dear Friends,


UPDATE: Thank you to everyone who participated in our recent milestone. We raised $2,685 in 5 days!  We've raised 5,685 so far!

Thank you so much to everyone who has donated so far. Unfortunately, our vans have broken down again since we first sent out our call to action a few weeks ago. They've been repaired in the meantime, but this shows the amount of time and money that go into keeping them in working order. Please join the donors who have raised $3,000 for us to replace our aging vans.

The girls we serve are primarily from families who find it difficult to provide transportation for their daughters to and from our programs. A number of parents are unable to afford a car or must work long hours in jobs with little flexibility, making it difficult to drop off and pick up their daughters. Our current aging vans were purchased in 2000, and after 16 years of almost daily use and multiple incidents of vandalism, they need frequent and expensive repairs. We need to update our vans with safer, more reliable vehicles with improved safety features.

Our work has a powerful impact not only on the girls that we serve, but also on the Pasadena community as a whole. We are reliant on charitable donations in order to be able to continue to provide these services. That is why we ask you to remember the YWCA Pasadena with a charitable contribution to support our important work year round. Any amount you can share is greatly appreciated and will go towards our goal of purchasing new vans for our programs.

When we support the growth and empowerment of women and girls, we improve the quality of life for all. Women lead in their communities, act as role models for youth, and give voice to issues that are important to our collective future. Please join us in our mission of eliminating racism and empowering women by making a donation today.
