Jubilee relies on the generous contributions of our community to make our work possible. Individuals, corporate partners, and foundations provide 100% of our funding and significant gifts of in-kind goods and services.
There are many ways to give to Jubilee. Your donations are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law. Jubilee’s tax ID is 91-1539920. Feel free to contact us with any questions.
Write a check payable to Jubilee Women’s Center and mail it to:
Jubilee Women’s Center
620 18th Avenue East
Seattle, WA 98112
You may be able to increase your contribution with a corporate match from your employer. See your human resources department to learn if your company offers this benefit. Retired employees are frequently eligible as well.
Donate in honor or in memory of someone. Please specify this in the designated space when making your online donation, or include a note with your check if you are mailing a donation. If you would like us to send a card to someone special to commemorate your gift, please contact us.
Secure a safe place for women to heal and rebuild their lives as they work toward living-wage employment and self-sufficiency. Show your ongoing commitment to helping women move past homelessness with a monthly contribution to Jubilee Women’s Center. As a Monthly Impact Circle member, we’ll send you regular updates so you know how your recurring contribution is making a difference for Jubilee residents and other low-income women in the community.
Your monthly gift (of any amount!) supports these and other programs that empower Jubilee women to build stable and fulfilling futures:
Case Management & Advocacy
Life Skills & Communications Classes
Computer Skills Training
Free Clothing Boutique
Pathways to Housing
If you have in-season, consignment-quality, women’s clothing, shoes, and accessories you no longer need, we can give them new life. Jubilee operates a free boutique for residents, alumnae and other low-income women in the community who would otherwise be unable to afford quality items. Clothing you donate becomes interview attire, a new job wardrobe, fitness-enabling athletic wear, a special event ensemble, or confidence-inspiring everyday pieces.
We accept donations at our main site on Capitol Hill during regular business hours. Please note, we are unable to take donations of men’s or children’s clothing, household items, books, electronics, furnishings, etc., unless specifically requested on our wish list. Women’s clothing donations that exceed our needs and storage capacity will be shared with community partners.
Your donations of wish list items help us maintain our residences, provide basic necessities for residents, and furnish private rooms for new program participants.
Currently, Jubilee residents and households would be grateful to receive the following:
Silverware, plates and dish sets
New bedding and pillows (standard twin size)
Toilet paper, facial tissues and wipes
Laundry detergent for HE washers
Lawncare equipment (gloves, shovels, rakes)
USB sticks/flash drives
Grocery and drug store gift cards
Pantry items (shelf stable and not expired)
ORCA cards in any amount
Pots, pans and pitchers
Blenders and electric tea kettles
Bath towels, hand towels and sponges
Garbage bags and biobags (all sizes)
Gardening supplies (spades, seeds, flowers, starter plants)
New razors and deodorant
Plus size clothing
We accept donations at our main site in Capitol Hill during regular business hours. If you have questions about whether Jubilee can use an item, please contact us before dropping it off.
Monday – Friday: 10am – 4pm
You can also find Jubilee Wish List items on Amazon and have them shipped directly to Jubilee.
We see drives and fundraising events as more than just collecting resources; they also bring people together. Hosting a drive or fundraiser is a wonderful way to engage your community — such as colleagues, a professional association, sorority or fraternity, neighborhood group, school, faith community, social club, family, or friends.
Below are some ideas to get you started:
Ask peers to bring items from Jubilee’s Wish List as “admission” to a social gathering, association meeting, etc.
Host a virtual benefit where each person purchases an item from the Amazon Wish List and sent directly to Jubilee.
Bake sales, lemonade stands, and car washes are good, old-fashioned fundraisers that suit a range of ages.
Host a brunch, cocktail, or dinner party and ask guests for a “suggested donation” to benefit Jubilee.
Clean out your stuff and raise money for a good cause with a yard sale.
Set up a personal fundraising page or Facebook fundraiser to benefit Jubilee, and tell your contacts why this cause is important to you.
Toilet paper drives are a hit with students!
Give instead of gift: Ask for donations to Jubilee in your honor instead of gifts for holidays, birthdays, weddings, etc.
Bra drives are popular with women who don’t get embarrassed easily. Contact us for the most needed sizes.
Ask co-workers to bring in gently-worn women’s clothing, shoes, and accessories for Jubilee’s free boutique and help a low-income woman build a quality work wardrobe.
Donate your car, truck, RV, boat, motorcycle, or other vehicle and support women at Jubilee. To donate, contact our vehicle donation partner, Charitable Auto Resources (CARS).
A CARS representative will schedule a pickup that’s convenient for you, and provide you with an initial donor acknowledgement letter for your gift. CARS will send Jubilee a check for your donation within five business days of your vehicle’s sale. Jubilee will send you an acknowledgement letter within two weeks of receiving the donation.
It can take several weeks for a vehicle donation and sale to be completed. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact CARS to check on your donation.
You can support a woman on her final step to independent living with a contribution to Jubilee’s matched savings program. It works like this: Residents complete a money management course at Jubilee, then they open a savings account to apply what they’ve learned. If a woman consistently invests $20-100 a month without any withdrawals for 20 consecutive months, Jubilee will match her savings 1:1, giving her up to $2,000 at program completion.
Matching funds for this program are provided through the generosity of Jubilee donors. If you would like to make a donation specifically for the matched savings program or learn more, please contact us.
The Donate Now button will direct you or our donation form where you can type “Matched Savings” into the designation field. Please also select, “I would like to make this a recurring donation deducted monthly.”
If you would like to donate stock, mutual funds, or other securities to Jubilee, please download the securities gifting form. This document provides instructions for your financial institution as well as contact information for our Morgan Stanley representative. You may also email our Development Department at firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance or more information.
Many of us give regularly to causes that matter to us, but few realize the impact we can have by making a gift in our will or estate plan, both for the organization we love and the people they support through their work. When you give a planned gift to Jubilee, you leave a legacy that helps lay the foundation for a woman to have a safe, stable and fulfilling future. Gifts of any size or type make a significant impact. Below are some options to consider:
Gifts of cash, stock, mutual funds or property can be left to Jubilee Women’s Center in your will or living trust. This is simple and inexpensive to set up and allows you continued use of current assets and income before you make a contribution.
Name Jubilee Women’s Center as the beneficiary for an IRA, 401k or other retirement account.
Designate Jubilee Women’s Center as a beneficiary in a life insurance policy.
A CRT gives you income for life or a fixed number of years, and you can name Jubilee Women’s Center as a beneficiary for the remaining portion.
Donate a fixed amount or percentage of proceeds from your estate sale to Jubilee Women’s Center.
Request that family and friends make memorial gifts in your honor to Jubilee Women’s Center.
