Donate a Car

Did you know you can donate a car? Transportation can be one of the biggest barriers to families working to start over. Donated cars go directly to clients, so they must be in good condition. You can claim your donated car’s fair market value on your income tax return. To learn more, call E’Lise at (406) 543-6691.


Shop and Donate at Secret Seconds

By shopping at and/or donating items to YWCA Missoula’s Secret Seconds Thrift Stores, you directly support our programs and services—while providing YWCA participants the opportunity to shop, using free vouchers, for the items they need to rebuild their lives.

Thank you!
