Host Your Own Fundraising Event

Every year the YW has the privilege of working with individuals and groups who come together to create awareness and raise funds on behalf of YW.  Hosting a fundraiser enables you to become a catalyst in our community while having fun and helping vulnerable women and their family’s transition to a place of hope and resilience.

Your fundraiser can raise money that will help women and their families, who may be struggling with poverty, homelessness, family violence or isolation, to move from a position of vulnerability to one of sustainable strength and opportunity.

Here are a few ideas for ways you can help:

  • Hold a charitable golf tournament and sell mulligans, donate registration fees;
  • Collect donations in lieu of gifts at your birthday, anniversary or company party;
  • Host a gala and organize a silent auction;
  • Organize a community garage or yard sale and donate proceeds.
  • Host an online fundraiser! Find YWCA Calgary on GoFundMe and Facebook Fundraisers to collect donations in lieu of gifts at your birthday, anniversary or company party. Learn more about online fundraising ideas here
