YWCA-GCR Building Centennial Celebration "100 Challenge"



This year marks the Centennial Celebration of the building housing YWCA of the Greater Capital Region (May 8, 1918 to May 8, 2018). This is the perfect time to reflect with friends and supporters like you who have changed the lives of women on their journey to improving themselves and providing a better life for their children.   

We ask you to join us in our efforts to continue building a healthy and strong community in downtown Troy for the next 100 years by supporting the 2018 Centennial Celebration Building Fund. By taking up this challenge and donating today, you can help YWCA-GCR reach our goal of $100,000. 

For the past 100 years this building has been the start of positive change for thousands of local women and children. Programs offered in this building by YWCA-GCR are designed to help women prepare for school and employment through economic advancement programs. It provides affordable, safe and supportive transitional and permanent housing, food security services, homelessness prevention, and advocates for gender and racial equity. With your support, we will be able to continue to be a catalyst for positive change in the community. By accepting the challenge, every woman who walks through these doors will have the opportunity to experience the support, hope and empowerment that YWCA-GCR brings to our community.
