Your donation makes a big difference for those building new lives of sobriety, self-sufficiency, and community service. WRA’s comprehensive services for those affected by substance abuse are offered on a sliding scale. Your contribution is an investment in the emotional and physical health of women, children and families who have suffered as a result of chemical addiction.
WRA is supported, in part, through funding from the County of San Mateo as well as private foundations, corporations, and individuals. WRA relies on support from the community so that it may continue to help those seeking recovery from substance abuse.

Making a gift of stock is easy. You’ll simply need to convey your instructions to your broker and WRA will receive the proceeds from your stock transfer.
A provision in your will for Women’s Recovery Association is a simple way to help support our treatment and recovery programs for women, girls and their families. A Charitable Remainder Trust can allow you to save income taxes and capital gains taxes in the current year, save estate taxes in later years, and receive a guaranteed income for life. You put a portion of your assets into the trust irrevocably, and the trust invests those assets and pays you a calculated amount for the rest of your life. At your death, the trust assets are used for the charitable purposes of supporting WRA’s treatment and recovery programs. A charitable remainder unitrust works especially well for individuals and couples who are 70 years of age or more. Please contact us for more information about donating vehicles, stock or bequests.
