Our Women’s Center at UMBC has been a campus fixture since 1991 and every year over 10,000 visits are made to the Women’s Center by our UMBC community members. While our mission will always be to support and advocate for women and gender equity for our campus, our work has shifted and flexed to meet the pressing needs of our community.
But, we cannot and have not ever done this alone. Since our very beginning, the work of the Women’s Center would not be possible without the financial support from our friends and allies.
If you are interested in making a donation to help support the Women’s Center, please consider making a financial contribution to us through UMBC’s Foundation.
You can make financial contributions via:
- Our Women’s Center GritStarter page
- Our Supporting Survivors GritStarter page (see our Take Back the Night video below!)
- Or directly to our UMBC Women’s Center Foundation Fund (instructions below on how to send a check)
We also welcome in-kind donations, particularly tampons, condoms, coffee, tea, and paper towels. We appreciate your support and commitment!
You can also support the Women’s Center with a gift from our Amazon wish list! Many of the books on our list can also be purchased from radical collective Red Emma’s in Baltimore.
While we are working remotely, please send us an email if you send books to campus so we can make sure to alert our mail room!
Other Ways to Help:
We believe survivors and support their healing journey. Will you join us? Give a gift today to the Women’s Center Supporting Survivors of Sexual Violence campaign.
