An Act of Love

When you give to YWCA Northwestern Illinois, you contribute not just your donation, but to a future. You have created opportunities where none existed and aided someone you don’t even know. In other words, you’ve committed an act of love for the person, their future, and the community. We give you our heartfelt thanks!
