For over 118 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.


Last year, we saw great success and received a wave of community support during our first ever Preserve The Legacy Campaign. Our long-time supporters rallied around us when we called, and we welcomed new supporters who learned about the impact of the YWCA Greensboro for the first time. We kicked off the campaign with a lead gift of $100,000 from Dr. Nido Qubein and High Point University.
This year, we are once again calling on our community for support. It is crucial that we continue to offer assistance to the populations we serve and preserve the legacy of our building’s namesake, Mrs. Shirley T. Frye.
This year, we hope you will join our fundraising efforts by leading efforts of your own! Our new JustGiving platform allows you to raise money with your friends and family to help support the YWCA Greensboro. All you have to do is visit our campaign page, click “Start Fundraising”, and in just a few easy steps, you will have a page of your own to customize and share. If fundraising is not for you, you can make a one-time monetary donation on the page as well. Technical support is available by emailing
