Is my transaction secure?

Absolutely! Your personal information will be stored in our database, but credit card information will not be stored by Dress For Success. For the purpose of refunds and recurring donations critical information will be safely stored with our payment processor, Moneris.

Which methods of payment do you accept?

You can pay online using Visa or Mastercard.

Will I receive a charitable receipt?

Under tax rules and regulations, this means that although 100% of your funds will directly benefit Dress for Success, we are providing something in return (networking opportunities, event discounts, perks program, etc.) which unfortunately rules out the tax receipt option. If you would like to make an additional donation to Dress For Success, you will receive a tax receipt.

What kinds of events does YES! host?

Our exciting networking opportunities include monthly mingles and themed signature events designed to allow you to meet like-minded professional women, make connections, and have fun! From spin classes to inspirational panelists and fashion shows, you can expect something different each time. Got a great idea for a future YES! event or venue? Drop us a line.

Can YES! members bring guests to events?

Can I come to a YES! event if I’m not a member yet?

Definitely! We encourage you to come to one of our events and experience what YES! is all about.

Are there other forms of networking besides the events?
