Other Ways to Give

There are many ways to support NEW. Please consider the gift that works best for you.

Partners for the Future

Sign up for recurrent giving – weekly, monthly, quarterly or annually – and help ensure an ongoing, steady flow of funds to support NEW’s housing and support services for homeless women and children. Your regular, recurring gift is an important part of our annual budgeting and implementation plan and will have an ongoing impact on DC’s most vulnerable women and children. Sign up now.

Planned Giving

You can create a legacy through bequests and other planned gifts. Contact Tracy Frish at 202.682.5825 to discuss how you can provide critical opportunities for homeless women and children for years to come.

Support us through Amazon Smile

Help support NEW when you shop at AmazonSmile, an initiative Amazon launched to help charitable organizations.

How to Get Started:

1. Visit smile.amazon.com

2. Select New Endeavors By Women as your charity to support

3. 0.5% of your purchase price will be donated to New Endeavors By Women. Don’t forget to put “smile” before “amazon.com” every time you shop to help support us.

Donate Gift Cards

Gift Card Tank is a service for non profit organizations that facilitates accepting gift cards as donations.  Make good use of unwanted or partially used gift cards by donating them to New Endeavors By Women. Gift Card Tank bridges the gap between gift card donors and the charities. A gift card as it is received by Gift Card Tank is liquidated into cash, and the charity receives the cash value of the card. Donate today!

Donate Household Items

New Endeavors by Women relies on the generous support of the community to ensure that we can meet the most basic needs of the women and children we serve. We welcome your donations of new and unused goods from the list below.

The best time to drop off donations is M-F 9-6 p.m. while the office is fully staffed. Our main office is located at 611 N St., NW, Washington, DC 20001. For more information, please email Tracy Frish at tfrish@nebw.org or call us at 202.682.5825 to set up an appointment to drop off your donation. You can also ship items directly to 611 N Street NW, Washington, DC 20001.

We cannot accept clothes, shoes, televisions, or used toys unless otherwise specified. We accept furniture on an as-needed basis for use by women who are transitioning out of our programs and into their own homes.
