Host A Fundraiser

Every year the YWCA Calgary has the privilege of working with individuals and groups who come together to create awareness, raise funds or collect gifts-in-kind on behalf of YW. Hosting a Fundraiser allows you to become a catalyst in our community while having fun and helping vulnerable women and their families’ transition to a place of hope and resilience.  Below are a few ideas for ways to help YW intervene, empower and lead when and where women need us most.  Please contact us with any ideas or questions and we will walk you through the best ways to ensure your fundraiser is fun and successful.
