Join YWCA Delaware on Thursday, October 19, 2017 for our Annual Breakfast Celebration fundraiser. At this hour-long event, be inspired by YWCA clients who have triumphed over extraordinary obstacles because of our programs and advocacy. Our $175,000 goal increases YWCA’s financial stability and future sustainability.

We invite you to invest in our clients and in YWCA Delaware’s future by joining or renewing your commitment in our Changing Lives Society. Your long-term support is essential as YWCA grapples with the 20% cut in Grant-In-Aid support from the state and cuts in United Way funding. Your financial support launches you into a powerful group of donors who want to make positive change happen and to invest in YWCA’s strong track record of meeting the community’s needs

This year, a special group of donors is challenging YWCA supporters to help make the organization financially sound for the long-term by making a new Changing Lives Society or other five year pledge. The first year of each five year pledge will be matched dollar for dollar by the Leadership Gift up to $51,000!

The Breakfast Celebration Fundraiser will be most meaningful to those who have learned about our mission by attending a Mission Tour. If you are already passionate about our mission, but are unable to attend this year's celebration, please consider helping us reach our fundraising goal by making an online Breakfast Donation.

YWCA Delaware is one of the oldest nonprofits in Delaware, and we honor that history by continuing to pioneer and stay on the cutting edge of community needs. Donors and volunteers spanning 12 decades invest in us because we are a trusted mainstay for women and families, especially as their needs evolve and change. 

Honorary Breakfast Chair:
Dr. LaVerne T. Harmon, President, Wilmington University

Breakfast Co-Chairs:
Nancy Crake, Vice President, Marketing Services at JPMorgan Chase and YWCA Board President-Elect
Colette Daney, Account Executive at MiniFibers, Inc. and YWCA Board Member

YWCA Delaware thanks our Breakfast Sponsors for their support!
