Corporate sponsorship is a way that companies and organizations publicly demonstrate they stand with YWCA Madison and our mission to eliminate racism and empower women. The dollars raised from these events support our critical programming, such as housing and employment services. YWCA Madison, annually, hosts one Circle of Women fundraising event, one Women of Distinction Awards luncheon, and a Racial Justice Summit. (Please note, there are currently modifications to these event, so that we can gather safely in a virtual space.)
Circle (formerly known as Circle of Women):
Wednesday, February 16, 2022 – Gathering Virtually
Circle is YWCA Madison’s biggest fundraising event built on the power of individual philanthropy.
This event attracts over 900 attendees and features inspirational stories from past participants of YWCA Madison programs.
