Support the Mission

How to Support Us?

There are many ways to support our mission to elimimate racism, empower women and create justice, freedom and peace for all…

  • Take an online program with us to level up your racial and social justice actions and make an impact in your own community.
  • Tell others about our work, our programs and even your employers/workplace to check out our programs to help create more equality and psychologically safer spaces for everyone.
  • Join us at an event!

Other Ways to Support Us:

Gifts of appreciated stocks, mutual fund shares and similar assets can have a big impact on the YWCA Southeast Wisconsin’s mission and potentially provide significant tax benefits to the donor.  To assure a smooth transfer, timely acknowledgment and tax-deduction documentation, before making such a gift, please seek the input of your tax advisor and consult these instructions below or contact Tracy Williams, President & CEO at [email protected].

Instructions to gift appreciated stock, or mutual funds or other similar assets

  • Consult with your tax or financial advisor to confirm you have held your asset at least one-year and a day as a first step
  • Confirm your fiduciary will notify us that YOU are making the gift – often this is not the case
  • Provide time for year-end transfers – to assure your gift is received in the tax year you intend, it is best to initiate December transfers prior to December 25th.

On behalf of all we serve, YWCA Southeast Wisconsin salutes our sponsors and partners. We work with corporations, foundations, organizations and government institutions committed to shared values to help us move our mission of eliminating racism and empowering women forward.  We welcome new sponsors and partners and look forward to finding ways to work together to empower women, stand up to racial injustice, and build a more just and inclusive community for all families.

Our incredible sponsors and partners provide critical financial support and collaborative expertise for programs and initiatives — from our signature events to community gatherings, from economic empowerment services to racial justice and gender equity classes.

To learn more about sponsorship and partnership opportunities, or propose your own idea, contact our Communications & Development team via email or give them a call at 414.267.3220.

Planned Giving

YWCA Southeast Wisconsin can effectively work with your professional advisor to assure that advance financial planning includes support for the YWCA SEW’s vital mission.  Whether making a planned gift during lifetime or as part of executing an estate, advance consultation with the YWCA SEW is the best way to assure donor intent is fulfilled without confusion or delay.

Beneficiary designations of life insurance, bank accounts, 401(k) or other retirement vehicles, or any asset (e.g., pension) that permits a beneficiary designation can be dedicated to YWCA SEW’s mission.  It is vitally important to discuss such designations thoroughly with your financial advisor prior to making them.

Wills and Trusts – It is easy to include the YWCA Southeast Wisconsin in your will by making a bequest to support its mission.  Trusts, both charitable remainder trusts and charitable lead trusts, are often part of the will preparation process.  Both kinds of trusts can make it possible to donate assets to YWCA SEW, while still enjoying some benefit from the asset. It is extremely important that a donor discuss these matters with personal financial and legal counsel, prior to executing any documents.

We at YWCA Southeast Wisconsin – our Staff, our Board of Directors, and our Stakeholders from a variety of communities throughout the region – hold racial justice as a fundamental value.
