Become A Sponsor

On Thursday, April 22nd, and Friday April 23rd, YWCA of Syracuse and Onondaga County, Inc. will be presenting its 22nd Annual Day of Commitment to Eliminate Racism and Promote Justice as part of a National Stand Against Racism call.  The event is themed “No Hate. No Fear.  Creating Equity in Our Community.”

Since its inception, the Day of Commitment has featured the Induction Ceremony of our Academy of Diversity Achievers, which has honored nearly 350 community leaders for spearheading programs that embrace and promote diversity, support opportunities for women’s growth and leadership, and advance the elimination of racism. The Day of Commitment has also been a medium for important diversity training, offering dozens of professional development workshops on multicultural and Diversity & Inclusion initiatives that have benefited nearly 1,000 event participants. With the backing of corporate partners that choose to invest in YWCA’s community-oriented work, the event has evolved into a signature fundraiser that celebrates notable work to end discrimination while equipping participants to launch similar projects themselves. This year are planning for in person and virtual activities to observe the event!

Proceeds from the event help support key YWCA programs and services in the community, such as healthy youth and teen programming, scholarships for children to attend YWCA summer camps, science equipment for girls in our STEM workshops, computer and job skills training, and our Women’s Residence Program, which helps victims of domestic violence and homelessness in Syracuse get back on their feet and once again actively contribute to society.

We are immensely appreciative of your previous support, and hope that you have found it a rewarding and worthwhile investment. Can we count on you to partner with us once again to continue to fulfill our mission in Syracuse and Onondaga County? We would love to welcome you into the 2021 YWCA Circle of Corporate Change Makers and offer the below menu of event support opportunities. Thank you for your consideration.
