World YWCA

Category:

The world’s oldest and largest women’s movement, the YWCA launched its first major fundraising campaign in 2000—a global effort to raise funds to endow activities that touch the lives of nearly 20 million women and girls in more than 100 countries. Benefactor Group designed and guided the implementation of a world-wide planning study and assisted in the identification and training of campaign leaders. We worked successfully with donors and volunteer leaders from far-flung cultures and helped the World headquarters in Geneva pursue major gifts from individuals, corporations, and foundations. As a result of our efforts, the World YWCA has added more than $11 million to their endowment and anticipates additional contributions through planned gifts and their strengthened global network.
