Become a Women of Excellence Fundraiser

In addition to honoring women leaders in our community, the Women of Excellence Awards and Gala is also the largest annual fundraiser for YWCA Northeast Kansas. By becoming a Women of Excellence fundraiser, you are supporting one of the most vital resources for the children and families who call the Topeka area home.

Some of our programs and services include:

  • Support for survivors of sexual and domestic violence, stalking, and human trafficking through the YWCA Center for Safety and Empowerment.
  • The Leadership Academy, supporting women’s empowerment and economic advancement, with a particular focus on the reality the way race impacts women’s economic opportunities.
  • A variety of Youth Services programs, providing families with high quality, affordable childcare, educational enrichment, and year-round support.
  • Advocacy and Racial Justice efforts seeking to break down barriers and build a stronger, more equitable community.

YOU can become a top fundraiser, and earn prizes to celebrate! 

Create your fundraising page, and invite your friends, family, guests, and colleagues to donate via your personalized fundraising link. You can also contribute in honor of a 2022 Woman of Excellence so that she may become a top fundraiser. We will announce our top three fundraisers at the 34th annual Women of Excellence Awards event on September 10th. (Note: You can become a fundraiser and participate in the friendly competition even if you're unable to attend in person on September 10.)

As you're fundraising, increase your chances of becoming a top fundraiser by sharing your fundraising link on social media! Be sure to tag @ywcaneks on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter - and use #YWOE2022 so we can see and share your posts, too!

You can also donate in the name of any of the 2022 Honorees. Head over to the "Meet the Honorees" tab, and click on an Honoree's name to contribute to their fundraiser and help them win a Top Fundraiser Prize!

All proceeds directly support YWCA Northeast Kansas' local inititives to empower women, eliminate racism, and promote peace, justice, freedom and dignity for all.
