"For four years, Women and Youth Supporting Each Other (WYSE) allowed me to have a role in dozens of young women's lives—both our middle school mentees and college-age mentors. The group is the cornerstone of my Stanford experience, and it's helped me grow into a leader and a more compassionate person." -- Callan Showers, Stanford WYSE ’19
Every year, our impact becomes more clear. We ask for your support as we close out an amazing year of WYSE.
Besides working with hundreds of middle school girls across the United States, our mentors have worked hard in their communities in session, on campus, and during national WYSE Week. (Read a story of how branches celebrated WYSE Week on their campuses in 2019 here.) We’re so proud of seniors like Callan who graduated last spring, and the new cohort of mentors and mentees that joined us this fall.
This giving season, we especially appreciate our WYSE supporters for connecting to our mission and believing in the work we do. Before 2019 closes, please consider supporting WYSE in one of these ways:
Save the Date! #GivingTuesday is December 3 and officially marks the beginning of the holiday giving season and our year-end campaign. Please consider donating to WYSE on #GivingTuesday. Donations made via Facebook (beginning December 3 at 2am ET / 5am PT) are eligible for a 1:1 match!
Donate. Even before or after #GivingTuesday, every single dollar we receive goes straight back into programming.
Matching Gifts. Major corporations offer matching gifts when employees donate to a nonprofit. We’re thankful for previous match donations from companies like Apple that have enhanced branch support throughout the year. Double your impact with a matching gift!
Shop on Amazon Smile. Use Amazon Smile to get your holiday shopping started early! Amazon will do the hard work for you, simply select “Women and Youth Supporting Each Other” as your nonprofit of choice. Cyber Monday and Black Friday are great days to shop online.
