Two ways to make a gift that matters.

Thank you for showing your support of YWCA Cortland! No gift is too small. Or too great. If you wish to make a gift of $100 or more, please donate via the National Philanthropy Day contest and give us a chance to win $10,000! If you wish to make a gift of less than $100, or do not want to give via the contest, please donate directly to YWCA Cortland. Find detailed instructions on making your gift in one of these two ways in this link.
