"When eating bamboo sprouts, remember the man who planted them." -Chinese Proverb

Thank you for considering a gift to YWCA New Britain.  Your donation to the YWCA will help us continue our work of eliminating racism, empowering women, and promoting peace, justice, freedom, and dignity for all.

Your gift opens up a world of possibilities to our members.  Each day we welcome hundreds of women, children, and families through the doors of the YWCA.  They all come to us for different reasons- for high-quality childcare, safe after-school programs, family literacy and GED programs, sexual assault crisis services, health and wellness activities, or a fresh start.  No matter what path our members are pursuing, we are committed to making their lives better.

We understand there are many causes worthy of your support, and it means so much to us that our donors make the YWCA a philanthropic priority.  It is both a great privilege and a great responsibility to earn your support, and we promise to water your sprouts and nurture them to grow and thrive.

YWCA New Britain is a non-profit agency. Donations are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.  For more information on giving contact Sarah Bernier at 860-225-4681, x242 or

Why I'm a YWCA Donor

When Susan Rathgeber started her three-year term as President of the YWCA New Britain Board of Directors in 1987, her youngest son was two years old.  Every time Susan would come to the YWCA for a meeting she would bring a puzzle, one of her son’s favorite activities, and he would sit quietly and work on the puzzle, while she led the YWCA board into the new decade.  Read more.
