Urgent and Pressing Need to Keep Families Safe

There is an urgent and pressing need for targeted, expert intervention and prevention to keep women and families safe. Some women have the support of family and financial means to leave, other women don’t due to years of control and financial abuse.

You can make a difference by giving one woman the space to leave. Donate Today

Regular Giving

Regular giving enables us to plan ahead and fund the programs and services across the communities we serve in Queensland.  It provides us with certainty and our staff with the confidence to continue our work in the community. 


Host a Fundraising Event  

Become a local hero and run a small event in your community or workplace to help raise funds for YWCA Queensland programs. Event ideas that we can assist you with include: 

  • Dress down days at work for gold coin donations
  • Work morning teas and lunches
  • Participate in a local fun run
  • Hold a trivia or movie night
  • Hold a raffle 



Workplace Giving

For the individual - Workplace Giving donations are deducted from your salary before tax is applied, thereby reducing taxable income. As donations are made pre-tax, it will only cost you 62 cents for every dollar you pledge (based on a marginal tax rate of 38%). Also donations are automated through your payroll system meaning you get an immediate tax deduction which saves the hassle of keeping receipts for your tax return.  What’s more, if your company matches your deduction – your contribution will make twice the difference!

For employers - workplace giving offers a vehicle to build non-profit community partnerships and boost employee morale. Research shows that such initiatives help to attract and retain quality talent. We can also provide volunteering opportunities for your staff to further their engagement.

For YWCA Queensland, workplace giving is low on cost and administration, maximising the benefits of your donation. Furthermore, workplace giving is often a stable and long term funding source meaning we are able to ensure the sustainability of our work in the community.

Support Our Events

Our work supports people to change their lives, through the development of life skills that assist them to become happy and contributing individuals. We are grateful for any support you can offer, whether it be through donations, attending fundraisers or involvement in our Events. Your support enables us to continue our important work within the community.

Join our mailing list, become a fan of our Facebook page or become a YWCA Queensland member to find out about our latest events. 



Choosing to leave money to YWCA Queensland in your will is one of the greatest gifts you can offer this organisation. Bequests make a significant impact on the ability of the organisation to continue to meet the needs of women and to champion gender equity. Contact us for advice and support including wording.


Corporate Partnerships

We appreciate your commitment to corporate social responsibility and your desire to assist women in need in Queensland. There are a variety of ways corporate businesses can support YWCA Queensland through sponsorship, philanthropy, cause-related marketing and more. We would welcome the opportunity to meet and discuss in detail.
