Women of Achievement Alumnae attending the 2022 luncheon.

Together, with the support of our guests and event sponsors, we raised $320,000 at YWCA Spokane’s 40th year of the Women of Achievement Awards Luncheon.

On Thursday, March 24th, 2022, YWCA Spokane gathered together with over 930 amazing friends and supporters from the Spokane community to celebrate the outstanding accomplishments of 8 trailblazers in our community. We were also inspired by a powerful keynote, Admiral Michelle Howard (Ret.).

Thank you so much to everyone who joined us for this special celebration. This event provides our community with the opportunity to honor extraordinary women who make a real difference in Spokane. This luncheon allows YWCA Spokane to spread awareness about domestic violence and its impact on survivors and their children and as well as inspire individuals and businesses to commit to act.

Thank You For Supporting Survivors and Families!

As our largest and most critical fundraiser, the support given at this event helps YWCA Spokane continue to provide vital programs and services to thousands of women, children, and families each year. Thanks to YOU, it creates pathways toward safety, hope, and healing.

Thank You To Our amazing 2022 Sponsors and the over 450 individual donors who helped us raise $320,000 to support YWCA Spokane’s critical services. On behalf of the over 16,000 women, children, and families we will serve this year who are impacted by domestic violence, homelessness, and unemployment, we thank you!
