Attend a YW Fundraising Event

What makes a fun event even better? When your attendance supports a worthy cause, like giving women and their families the resources to build a better life. That’s exactly what you do when you attend a YW Calgary event, support a participant with a pledge or donation, or host your own event in support of YW.

What makes a YW signature event successful?2017-06-16T08:14:48-06:00

YW signature events are successful through the support of generous sponsors, donors, participants, and guest speakers.  We continue to evolve and adapt our events to ensure they are relevant, impactful and enjoyable.  In addition to raising funds, our events also raise awareness of issues such as homelessness, family violence, and poverty.
