Women of Achievement Awards
YWCA is Set to Host 35th Annual Women of Achievement Awards, Virtually
The YWCA Lower Cape Fear is dedicated to eliminating racism, empowering women, and promoting peace, justice, freedom, and dignity for all.
The Women of Achievement Awards is YWCA Lower Cape Fear’s signature fundraising to recognize and celebrate the accomplishments of women and young leaders in the community. Since 1985, YWCA has honored over 400 women. The event raises key support for the YWCA’s advocacy programs and services, which promote racial justice and gender equity for thousands of women, children, and their families in southeastern North Carolina.
Throughout 2020, YWCA has kept its doors open, not only working on the frontlines to provide child care for essential working families, but to gather resources and funding to deliver meals and groceries to families in the Grandparent Support Network, and assist women and mothers who have faced job cut-backs, low-wages, or loss of housing in the New Choices Economic Empowerment and Early Parenthood Programs.
As the pandemic continues, we anticipate new challenges will arise as the situation has heightened existing inequalities in our community. YWCA’s mission and work has always focused on making sure that adequate resources and supports remain available, especially to our most vulnerable community members.
We cannot do this work alone. YWCA has felt the impact of the policies and regulations stemming from the pandemic. YWCA lost a significant source of funding with the cancellation of the 2020 Women of Achievement Awards, whose funds support our community outreach programs. However, YWCA is still here with the goal to ensure we can continue to deliver critical assistance and support to the community.
With the strength of people and power of community we can endure. Your sponsorship of the 35th annual Women of Achievement Awards will ensure YWCA continues to deliver life-changing services to those most in need.
