A shared vision: what your donation will accomplish 

Your gift can help us achieve our vision of a more inclusive and equitable Boston. Donations to YW Boston directly support our three programs, InclusionBostonLeadBoston, and the F.Y.R.E. Initiative, as well as our advocacy work. 

Gifts of $1,000 or more make you a member of our Persimmon Society. Persimmon Members will be invited to special events featuring civic and business leaders, recognized in our annual reports and on our website, and provided with advance ticket sales for our major events. 


In 2018, our supporters enabled us to:

  • Reach over 120,000 individuals through the YW Boston website and social media.
  • Empower over 160 organizations to raise awareness and spark action during our annual Stand Against Racism campaign.
  • Help over 700 individuals within organizations in Boston build more inclusive and equitable environments through Workshops and InclusionBoston.
  • Graduate 40 leaders from LeadBoston who are now equipped to advance diversity and inclusion in their workplaces and communities.
