Give to YWCA through the Blue Mountain Community Foundation

Why does this page look different than it used to?

Reason No. 1: Grow your gift by 10-15%! Until December 31, 2021, we’re asking you to make all your YWCA donations through the Blue Mountain Community Foundation (BMCF) Valley Giving Guide. That’s because every gift will grow by 10-15%. So an online gift of, say, $500 becomes $550, or maybe even $575.

Reason No. 2: No fees for online* transactions! Not only has BMCF arranged the matching pool, they are covering card fees for all online transactions, so every penny goes to help survivors in need. Donations by check, stock or other alternative method* will also receive the matching benefits if they go through the foundation.

To qualify for matching funds, checks must be written to Valley Giving Guide and mailed to: BMCF, P.O. Box 603, Walla Walla, WA 99362. We’d love to see your face (even just the top half), so if you’d rather come in person, feel free to drop off a check here (as long as you’re masked and free of cold/flu/COVID symptoms.) Just write the check to Valley Giving Guide, and however it’s delivered, make sure it says “YWCA Walla Walla” on the memo line.

*Alternative types of donations require more paperwork so they are subject to a small handling fee. (Please note, though, that the matching benefit will be at least 3x more than this fee!)
