Raise Funds

Interested in raising money to help end women’s homelessness in greater Los Angeles? We’d love your support.

Previous successful fundraisers have been as diverse and creative as the city and community we serve. Donate a portion of proceeds from a ticketed event, host a gathering at your home, ask for pledges for your participation in an athletic event—the possibilities are endless!


There are three simple steps to raising money for DWC:


Fill out the application form below to indicate your interest. We’ll respond within two business days with next steps for your fundraising event.


Download our communications toolkit. This toolkit contains communications tips for before, during, and after your event, along with access to our logo and boilerplate language.


Fill out a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU). This ensures we’re both on the same page with expectations for your fundraising activity.


  1. We ask that all fundraising events in support of the Downtown Women’s Center receive written permission from DWC prior to the start of the fundraising event.
  2. All promotional materials or press releases for the event that mention the Downtown Women’s Center must be reviewed and pre-approved by DWC.
  3. Please keep in mind that the women we serve at DWC are our priority. All external fundraising events should align with our work to foster dignity, respect, and personal stability for women experiencing homelessness in Los Angeles.
