We can't do it without you

How to Help

The TWC is an all-volunteer organization. We are grateful for any support you can provide and all contributions will be used to most effectively meet the needs of incoming families.

There are three ways you can support TWC to help families in need:

To Help Families in Need

Donate Money

Onetime or recurring donations by credit card should be made online through our fiscal sponsor Community Partners on our Network for Good page. Community Partners is a 501(c)3 corporation, established in 1991 as an incubator for emerging nonprofits. They provide the Topanga Women’s Circle with fiscal, legal, and corporate sponsorship and allow TWC to operate as a fully tax-exempt organization. All donations are tax-deductible to the full extent of the law.

Don’t forget to ask if your employer has a matching gift program. Your financial contribution may be doubled or tripled.

Donations made by check should be made to:

Donate Things

Our donation bin location is: Pine Tree Circle (across from Canyon Gourmet), Topanga, CA 90290

Opening hours: every Saturday from 9:00 to 10:30 am, except for holidays and extremely hot or wet weather.

If you have any questions about which items are needed or appropriate don’t hesitate to contact us or drop by the bin to talk to us.

All household donations must be clean, new and like-new, or very gently used. Tax forms for larger donations are available at the bin. Each month we will let you know what we’re running low on. And here is a list of items that we gratefully accept.

In order to respect the businesses in Pine Tree Circle we need to keep our donated bin and its surrounding area clean.  Items left when the bin is not open are DISCARDED IN THE TRASH.

To give your time


TWC encourages our community to participate in a hands-on way in improving the lives of those who so very desperately need our help.
