The YWA Foundation is a 501(c)3 organization that was established in 1997. The purpose of the Foundation is to build a financial base for YWA in order to expand the professional development programs we offer our members and to support the growth of our community outreach.
Through the Foundation, YWA was able to grant multiple scholarships each year to young women in or entering college or trade school. The Foundation also awarded an annual grant to YWA’s non-profit Partner, the Girls Empowerment Network who shares our mission of providing women and girls with the tools they need to reach their full potential. The Foundation, allowed YWA to foster the growth and development of women in Austin, serving both YWA members as well as young women throughout the Central Texas community.
Support for the YWA Foundation was provided by the fundraising efforts of our Members during our Fall Fundraising Campaign, through proceeds from Austin Under Forty, YWA’s annual Fundraiser, the YWA Endowment Fund, and by generous donations from individuals and corporations in our community.
The investment you make in the Foundation will help YWA to further our mission of bringing educational opportunities and professional growth to women in our community, creating opportunities for aspiring young women and girls to become tomorrow’s leaders.
We continuously purse new ways to provide these funding opportunities and excitedly await our next chapter.
