Funders & Partners

A- A A+

On behalf of women, girls, and families that we serve in the Greater Madison area, we salute our partners with heartfelt thanks. YWCA Madison works with corporations, foundations, organizations, and government institutions to help us further our mission of eliminating racism and empowering women. We welcome new partners and look forward to finding ways to work together to stand up for social justice, help families, and strengthen communities.

We know that our work won’t be complete until racism is eliminated and women are empowered, and we can’t do it alone. With your support, YWCA can continue to tackle the most challenging and pressing social justice issues facing our community.

To get in touch about partnership or event sponsorship opportunities, contact our Development and Marketing Director, Jill W. Pfeiffer via email or call 608.395.2174.
