5 Ways to Support Calvary in May

The weather is warming up and there are lots of exciting ways to support Calvary Women’s Services’ mission in May! From becoming a Partner for Tomorrow to purchasing a ticket to Cocktails for Calvary to volunteering, there are ways for everyone to get involved this month.


Want to make an impact in the lives of women year-round? Our Partners for Tomorrow program unites a dedicated group of donors who financially support the women at Calvary Women’s Services each month. Generous donors give anywhere from $10 to $500 every month to meet the tangible needs of our community. You can empower women every month by signing up here.


Kick off the summer with Calvary Women’s Services at Cocktails for Calvary! Together, we’ll celebrate women who are working to overcome homelessness. Sip on refreshing drinks and enjoy tasty hors d’oeuvres on Dacha Shaw’s beautiful patio, while supporting our transformative programs and connecting with other members of the Calvary community.

Every dollar raised during this event will benefit Calvary Women’s Services’ life-changing programs, providing crucial support to women on their journey toward stability and self-sufficiency.

Extend the invitation to your nearest and dearest – friends, family, colleagues, and neighbors alike – and join together to support Calvary’s mission and the remarkable women in our programs! Purchase your ticket or make a donation today here.


Mark your calendars for May 15th to take part in Do More 24, DMV’s largest annual 24-hour online fundraiser! You can make a gift to Calvary and join thousands of generous donors who are commented to making an impact in the region.

Powered by United Way of the National Capital Area (United Way NCA), Do More 24 is one focused day of giving that allows us to create the greatest impact together as a community! Create your own fundraiser through Do More 24’s portal or donate directly to Calvary’s Do More 24 page and empower women ending their homelessness for good.

Early giving begins May 1st! To learn more about how you can make an impact at Calvary through Do More 24, click here.


You can make memories and make an impact this May by hosting a fundraising event in honor of Calvary Women’s Services. You can donate proceeds from your favorite fitness class, host a wine tasting, or put together a Brown Bag lunch at your place of work to raise awareness of our work to support women.

Hosting a fundraiser at your office, church, or club is another fantastic way of supporting women ending their homelessness for good at Calvary! Contact Allison Kraemer (akraemer@calvaryservices.org) for additional event support.


Calvary needs volunteers to provide warm, nutritious meals to women in our programs in May. These meals are an essential part of our mission to ensure that women can focus on transforming their lives while eating healthy. Our New Foundations and Reach Up programs are both in need of one-time meal drop-offs and reoccurring volunteers to provide meals each month.

This is a great activity for your family, friends, coworkers, or congregation! You can sign up to be a meal volunteer by clicking here.
