For over 117 years, the Shirley T. Frye YWCA Greensboro has strived to eliminate racism and empower women. Our programs provide education, support, shelter, and assistance to Greensboro’s most marginalized populations, including homeless families, pregnant and parenting teens, and minority groups facing racial injustice.


The Preserve The Legacy campaign challenges us to ReCover, Reimagine, and Rebuild fundamental tenets of sustaining our legacy.

We are recruiting 100 Friends of YWCA Greensboro. These friends are people and businesses who support our mission to eliminate racism and empower women. They generously donate their money and time to make our mission possible. They promote the values embodied by Mrs. Shirley T. Frye. They have held this organization near to their hearts for decades, or who want to start today!

There are many levels of giving so no matter your ability to give, you can be a part of preserving our legacy.
