Host a Fundraiser

Partnerships and community connections are an essential part of working toward equity.

YWCA Edmonton is proud to collaborate with organizations, agencies, and community members to raise funds for our work. Every dollar raised helps build equity for vulnerable women and families in Edmonton and beyond.

Community fundraisers offer a unique opportunity for supporters to raise money while connecting friends and loved ones to the work of YWCA Edmonton. 

Whether online or in-person, your support can make a difference in the lives of vulnerable people across Edmonton.

Fundraising Events

In-person events are a great way to bring likeminded people together to support a good cause. 

From backyard BBQs to catered galas, every dollar raised supports life-changing programs and goes towards building equity, opportunity and choice in your community.

Online Events

Online platforms like Facebook and CanadaHelps make it incredibly easy to engage your networks and fundraise for any reason, including special occasions like birthdays, anniversaries, and tributes. 

Create a campaign and challenge your friends to see who can show the most support!
