Create momentum. Change lives.
The YWA Foundation is a separate 501(c)3 entity established in 1997. The purpose of the YWA Foundation is to build a financial base for YWA and support future growth of our community programs. Through the Foundation, YWA is able to grant multiple scholarships each year to young women in or entering college or trade school. The Foundation also awards an annual grant to our 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.
Through the Foundation, YWA is able to foster the growth and development of women in Austin, serving both YWA members as well as women and girls throughout the Central Texas community.
Support for the YWA Foundation is provided by the fundraising efforts of our Members during our Foundation Fundraising Campaign, through proceeds from Austin Under Forty, YWA’s annual Fundraiser which recognizes leading young professionals in Austin, and by generous donations from individuals and corporations in our community.
Your generous donation to 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 future leaders in Central Texas and beyond.
