Third Party Fundraising

PLEASE READ: Thank you for wanting to support the Downtown Women’s Center! Please contact for any questions.  

We have a quick and easy process to make your fundraising idea come to life:

  1. Fill out the form below.
  2. Once the form is submitted, we’ll reach out with any questions or move forward with sending you a Memo of Understanding via DocuSign for your signature. This document ensures we’re on the same page with the details and expectations of your fundraising initiative, and confirms the DWC as a beneficiary.
  3. We’ll send you our Communications Toolkit, which has our logo options and boilerplate language about the DWC for your event promotions. We request to review any promotional materials that use our logo before they are publicized.

Please keep in mind that the women we service at the DWC are our priority. All external fundraising events should align with our work to foster dignity, respect, and personal stability for women experiencing homelessness in Los Angeles.

Please also note that we can not be the beneficiary of an online raffle. Due to California regulations, it is illegal to organize an online raffle without a license or if you are not a certified nonprofit. Read more about the restrictions here.

If you agree to the guidelines above, please fill out the following application.
