The YWCA Greater Green Bay turns 100 in 2019! Imagine the number of women and children that have been supported over the past century. You won’t need to look too far to find someone that has been touched by this organization. From swimming lessons, to child care, to our women’s career closet, to our fitness center, the YWCA has provided essential services to women in our community. We need your help to continue the tradition of the YWCA in Green Bay.

Did you know that the YWCA relies on community support for 40% of our annual operating budget? While our program fees help to support the variety of services we provide, we need community involvement to continue furthering our mission of empowering women and eliminating racism. We have one location and all money raised stays in the Green Bay community. Please consider extending this community tradition.

How can you help? Find the month during our Campaign of the Century that inspires your giving. Our goal is to raise $1.5 million in 2019.
