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 cards (Amazon, Visa) are a great way to ensure NEW women receive the specific items they need: cutlery for a new home, books for a class or chef pants for a new job. NEW women are on a journey to improve themselves and gain the confidence they need to lead stable lives. Any help you give is appreciated.

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.

It’s been a challenging time for all of us as we adjust our days, our budgets and our expectations to COVID-19. And now, add a city and country grasping for footing after the death of an unarmed black man by a white police officer and we all feel even more out of control, unstable, and concerned about the future. Here at NEW we know that one way we can process our own feelings is to think about the needs and feelings of others.

We need you. The women need you. Your community needs you. Now more than ever women and children in DC need a safe and stable place to live.
