Community Events Benefiting YWCA Greater Austin
Thank you for considering hosting a community event to benefit the YWCA Greater Austin. Fundraising is one of the most important functions for any nonprofit. The monies raised through initiatives like yours make it possible for us to continue providing affordable mental health services, life skills classes for at-risk youth, childcare subsidies for families in crisis, case management and trainings to help address the root causes of gender and race-based inequity.
We believe that together we can achieve YWCA’s mission of eliminating racism, empowering women and promoting peace, justice, freedom and dignity for all. Your event can make a difference. We are always excited when someone approaches us with an event that they’re planning and says, “I want this to make a difference in someone’s life.” We appreciate any opportunity to help raise awareness about our mission, our services and how people can get involved.
From birthday parties to concert proceeds to “round-up” promotions, you can help us make Austin a more equitable community for all. Your support and initiative prove that our mission is achievable.
For more information about organizing a community event benefiting YWCA Greater Austin please contact Cristina Tangredi, YWCA Greater Austin Fund Development and External Relations Manager.
Community Events FAQs
- How will you promote our event?
- Does my event have to raise money?
- Are there any events that are not a good fit?
We will leave the production and promotion of the event to you. Neverthless, we will share news about community events on our website and social media channels. All we need from you is an image, flyer, and any relevant hashtags, and we will spread the word!
Events can benefit YWCA in many ways. A donation bucket, percentage of your proceeds is one way, but we can also partner on gift card or school supply drives, etc. We are always looking for ways to provide a direct and impactful benefit to the people we serve. Events that raise awareness are also a wonderful and very important way to build support around our mission of eliminating racism and empowering women.
YWCA Greater Austin will decline partnership for any event associated with an organization or activity incompatible with our mission, or that supports or opposes political candidates or political parties.
