Spirit of American Women

Spirit of American Women is a yearly special event that supports the women, girls and families served through YWCA programs such as Girls Incorporated, the Women’s Residence and our four Out of School Time programs. These programs enrich the lives of women and girls in our community.

Spirit of American Women is also a fundraiser that celebrates the power of individual philanthropy.  Guests hear from women who have changed their lives with support from YWCA Syracuse & Onondaga County and discover how their gift benefits women and girls in our community. This event encourages philanthropy among women and provides an opportunity to network with others from diverse social, ethnic, economic, educational, and cultural backgrounds. Spirit of American Women provides participants with the opportunity to learn about the YWCA. Funds donated by guests at the event will support the YWCA Syracuse & Onondaga County programs for affordable housing, employment & training, youth development  and after-school enrichment for young girls and teens.
