#GivingTuesday was a success, thanks to you!

Fantastic news! Because of you, we were able to raise $4,965 on #GivingTuesday, which means that we will receive the full $4,000 match (provided by anonymous donors). This means that the YWCA Elgin will receive a total of $8,965 from #GivingTuesday.

These funds will allow us to continue Building Brighter Futures for our clients through our programs and services.
