YWCA Madison Circle Captains

THANK YOU for considering becoming a 2023 Circle Captain!

Circle Captains (previously Table Captains) are an integral part of YWCA Madison Circle’s success, and are also an integral part of YWCA Madison’s mission to eliminate racism and empower women. Many people ask, “what can I do?” to support racial justice in our community. Being a Circle Captain is a tangible way to raise critical funds for YWCA Madison, raise awareness in our community, and support one of Dane County’s largest organizations run by a Black woman leader in our community, Vanessa McDowell.

We promise you and your guests a memorable program and a rewarding experience. At the conclusion of the event, your guests will be asked to make a donation of at least $120 (for our 20th!) to YWCA Madison. Contributions may be paid in different ways.


  • Getting  a minimum of 9 people to attend in-person and donate $120.  (As a Circle Captain, you will host a table of 10, including  yourself!)
  • Engage your guests before, during and after the event. There is about a 2 hour commitment on the day of the event. 
  • Share posts/emails about YWCA Madison Circle event within your network.

YWCA Madison Circle will take place at Alliant Energy Center on Thursday, February 16, 2023 from 11:30AM to 1:30PM.
