Our goal in the next 11 DAYS is to raise at least $5,000 so that we can establish ourselves as a permanent campaign with
The mission of the Women’s Center of Greater Lansing is to guide, empower, and heal women. Please donate any amount to help us reach our goal.
Since the Women’s Center of Greater Lansing opened its doors in 2005, we have remained the ONLY nonprofit organization in the Lansing area that provides these essential services to enable women to be successful.
What makes us unique is HOW we do what we do.
All of our services are offered on a one-to-one basis. We start where the person is when she walks in the door, and go from there. No assuming. No judgement of where she should be in her life. NO ONE is turned away based on inability to pay.
This is why we need YOU!
Our fundraising campaign must go through a trial-run in order for us to secure a stabilized space on their website. We launch on March 14th and we have 11 days to raise $5,000 from 40 different donors. This is where YOU come in.
Global Giving is the first and largest global crowdfunding community for nonprofits. It is a powerful community that connects donors with causes they care about.
Your donation will help us provide the following help to our clients:
- Employment. We uncover potential and help with resumes, job search navigation tools, interview skills, negotiations, and training.
- Computer lab. Reserved for job seekers with the most up to date software. We train women to use computer programs that are necessary to be successful in today’s competitive job market.
- Essential resources. Our clothes closet offers head-to-toe professional clothing and accessories to give women the confidence to set themselves up for success. Our personal care and feminine hygiene closet provides women with daily products that are often hard to afford.
- Counseling. We have an amazing team of counselors who help women cope with unemployment, loss, anxiety, divorce, sexual assault, intimate partner violence, child abuse, and other soul-crushing traumas.
- Support groups. We cover a variety of topics such as: Healthy Relationships and Domestic Violence, Disability, Cars 101, Empowerment, Financial Independence, Caregiver Support, Learning To Let Go, Work Your Image, Healthy Communication, Anxiety and much more.
- Safety. We help women get out of abusive relationships safely.
- One of a kind. We provide resources in a way that cannot be found anywhere else.
- We save lives.
While so much work has been done, we are nowhere close to being finished. We are an organization with a really, really big heart. In an ideal world, this big heart would take us to extraordinary places, enabling us to help all of those who need it. But this isn’t an ideal world, and what we have in heart, we lack in resources. We don’t have the money to provide continuous supplies, salaries, and other products that the women we serve need. The demand far outweighs our supply.
With the help of Global Giving, we have the opportunity to take one step closer to our ideal world.
Give what you can.
Maybe it’s $10, maybe it’s $500. Every penny counts. Whether you are in a position where you are able to give or not, you can all help in one simple way: share our story. Share our posts about Global Giving. Share how the WCGL has helped you or someone you know.
We have a goal of raising $50,000. Help us get there by supporting us through this first phase of fundraising. We need your support, your voice, and your heart.
