YW Calgary relies on funding from the community — both individuals and corporations — as well as government in order to support and empower women. We regularly disclose the way we use that funding, so our donors and partners can see an account of their generosity in action, and so that we can continue to provide a clear picture of our ongoing impact. Take a look at our annual reports and financial statements below.

Thank you!

In 2018-19, donors, volunteers and supporters like you helped us provide vulnerable women and their families with the programs and services they need to move forward with dignity. It is because of your gifts that YW remains a beacon of hope for women. Your kindness and generosity fueled the triumphs of each woman we served. We are endlessly thankful for your support.

Acknowledged below are those that contributed financial gifts of $500 or more, however, we are truly grateful to all our generous donors.
