Working together for a brighter future
In 2022, YWCA Metro Vancouver will celebrate 125 years of changing lives. In anticipation of this milestone, in 2018 we launched a fundraising and engagement campaign called The Next 125.
The Next 125 is driven by a group of passionate individuals and families who are transforming our communities through donations of $25,000 or more.
This campaign will raise $12.5M to ensure our work continues for another 125 years, to uplift those who are not always visible – women, girls and youth who are marginalized. When women and girls are supported, the whole community thrives.
Supporters can make a lasting impact on any or all three areas driving our work:
- Helping Women and Families Flourish
- Creating Safe, Inclusive Communities
- Building Brighter Futures, For Everyone
Provide crucial discretionary support as an Urgent Response Partner.

Donate to the Campaign
By pledging $25,000 or more, you will join a group of community builders who share a deep commitment to supporting women and children across Metro Vancouver.
Make an annual gift, pledge your support over multiple years, leave a gift in your will or gather your friends for an event or group donation. New and increased gifts to The Next 125 Campaign will be matched up to $1 million by an anonymous donor. Please review the campaign needs here to join us, or contact us.
