Visionary Leaders

A united community of givers who are passionate about transforming lives: one child, one teen, one woman, and one family at a time. 

Making Transformation Change Possible

Visionary Leaders make transformational change possible through their leadership, influence and annual giving of $1,000 or more. 

Your Visionary Leader gift can provide life changing support to a survivor, woman, or family in need. Or, fund a critical element of a YWCA program or service that would otherwise not be possible.

A Shared Goal

Unite a circle of 1,000 supportive leaders who choose to be:

  • Pioneers who support women and children when they need it most;
  • Pathfinders who create opportunities for safety, healing, & education;
  • Trailblazers who see the critical impact and lasting change their investment creates for families served by YWCA every day.

A Shared Impact

In 2023, the Visionary Leader Circle collectively gave nearly $450,000!

Together, these gifts made an enormous impact:

  • Transforming lives,
  • Supporting new violence prevention programs,
  • And covering gaps in grant funding for YWCA programs and services.

Become a Visionary Leader

Maximize your impact by committing to the level that most aligns with your annual giving capacity and the difference you want to make at YWCA Spokane.

Impact Circles

Leader - Level I: $25,000+

Visionary - Level II: $10,000+ 

Trailblazer - Level III: $5,000+ 

Pathfinder - Level IV: $2,500+

What Your Gift Can Do

Your gift can have a profound impact on YWCA Spokane's clients, programs and services. 

$1,000 is the average cost of empowering one survivor to change their life with safety, hope, and healing found at YWCA Spokane.

You can make a gift to support our areas of greatest need, or choose to designate your gift towards a specific need.
