YWCA of the Mid-Peninsula Fund
The mission of the YWCA Mid-Peninsula (YWCA-MP) is Eliminating Racism and Empowering Women and Girls. The Donor Advised Fund, which serves southern San Mateo and northern Santa Clara counties, was established in 2004, upon the closure of the YWCA of the Mid-Peninsula and the sale of its Palo Alto building, when assets from the sale were invested with the Women’s Foundation of California. Since that time, the Fund has leveraged the interest derived from its investments to distribute more than $2,302,810 in grants to more than 50 agencies whose programs align with the Fund’s mission, including programs that address education, teen pregnancy, termed out foster care girls, rape crisis intervention, domestic violence, women entrepreneurs, gay and lesbian issues, immigration rights, public policy advocacy training, and numerous barrier breaking racial justice programs.
