YWCA has been leading the fight for social, racial and economic justice for all since 1917. And we’re just getting started. On May 4th we launched the public phase of our Second Century Campaign to raise $1.5 million in support of two major initiatives: The Women’s Impact Fund & Stand Together Arizona Training and Advocacy Center. YWCA has created history in this community – now it’s time for us to make some history together. Stand with us.

Campaign for a Second Century

We kicked off a Second Century Campaign at our 100th birthday party last week – and we've already raised $1.2 M toward our goal of $1.5 M. This film helps explain why it matters so much. Stand With Us! Visit www.ywcatucson.org to find out how.

Women’s Impact Fund
Your gift to the Women’s Impact Fund is an investment in economic development and financial sustainability for women and families in Southern Arizona. These dollars will allow us to:
Launch a micro-lending program, which will provide access to capital (from $500-$50,000) for women & minority entrepreneurs in Southern Arizona.

Invest in new business ventures that drive economic development in Pima County, ventures like the Kitchen Business Incubator we are building on Tucson’s Southside.

Your gifts to the Women’s Impact Fund qualify for a challenge match from the Connie Hillman Family Foundation, up to $250,000. Help us meet this challenge!

Stand Together Arizona Training & Advocacy Center
We call this new statewide center “STAT,” for short, because this is work that can’t wait one minute longer. STAT, which is co-hosted by YWCA’s across Arizona, is challenging the extreme agenda that is hurting Arizona’s people, especially our kids, crippling our economy and wrecking our environment.

Our work includes:

  • Supporting grassroots activists
  • Voter education and engagement
  • Civic leadership and racial justice training
  • Public policy advocacy
  • Mission-driven art and theater programs that educate and inspire people to take action

This campaign officially kicked off on May 4, 2017… and we have already raised more than $1.2 million. Your gift today can help us reach our goal. Thank you!
