Donate or Volunteer

We are thrilled that so many men and women are interested in our mission for the economic advancement and empowerment of women in the Great Lakes Bay Region.  Please contact us with the form below to volunteer your time and talents. Some options include:

Join one of our planning committees for our special events.  Our Women of Achievement takes place in February, the Riverside Art Festival takes place in June, and the Women’s Empowerment Symposium happens in November.

Join a standing committee. They meet monthly to support the mission of YWCA. Our committees include:



          Fund Development


          Racial Justice

          Young Women’s Leadership

Become a mentor to one of our Getting Ahead graduates. Share your experience and perspective of the business and professional world, and help a woman achieve her goals. This is an incredibly rewarding experience!

Partner with our Getting Ahead program. We’re always looking for professional stylists, photographers, or other services to get our graduates career-ready.

Provide instruction or attend a community education/professional development program. Programs we have offered in the past include customer service, public speaking, social media, leadership, professional writing, and more. We are always open to new ideas for classes!

Have extra unused personal care items in your home? We collect items year-round for our Getting Ahead graduates. During the holidays, we provide items to women who are struggling financially so that personal care needs are one less thing they need to purchase.

Donate your used eyewear. We partner with the Bay City Lions Club and have a drop-box in our Bay City office.

Choose YWCA Great Lakes Bay Region as your Toys for Tots Drop-Off location! Our Bay City office has a donation box available each fall.

Complete your semester-long internship with YWCA Great Lakes Bay Region. We offer three opportunities; marketing/events, family life education, and community outreach.

If you are interested in becoming involved with YWCA Great Lakes Bay Region, contact Brandon Strong at (989) 894-9055 or strongbrandon@att.net, or complete the volunteer form listed below.

If you are unable to volunteer your time, remember a financial gift is also a great way to support the mission of YWCA Great Lakes Bay Region.  We look forward to hearing from you soon. And remember to empower, lead, mentor, and encourage! When we do, we all succeed!
