Partner with us

YWCA Canberra empowers women, girls and their families to achieve equality for all. For 90 years we have worked to ensure that everyone has the right to contribute to and share equally in, the benefits of the community’s social, cultural and economic development.

At YWCA Canberra, we understand the importance of choosing a not-for-profit partner that aligns with your corporate social responsibility and philanthropic objectives.

We work collaboratively with like-minded organisations, schools, businesses, all levels of government, and leaders in the community to ensure that our collective resources make the biggest possible impact for the people we serve.

Dozens of companies have already discovered the impact that a collaborative partnership with us can have. There are a range of ways that your company can work with us to not only strengthen your business but transform the Canberra community for the better, including:

Our approach to partnerships

Our partnerships are built on trust, transparency, a shared vision for equality for all, and a commitment to effecting positive social change. Your company may wish to support a specific project, give to our community development and emergency relief work, or co-create a targeted campaign.

With each of our partnerships, we develop clear goals and strategies before resources are allocated. Through our Results Based Accountability framework, we collect and share data on our progress, reflect on lessons learned, and adapt our approach accordingly. Key to this process is an ongoing dialogue and iterative ideas development with our partners, and celebrating our successes together along the way!
