Evanston/North Shore

Corporate Partners


YWCA Evanston North Shore Corporate Partners program creates the opportunity for deeper collaboration between YWCA Evanston/North Shore and corporate organizations that support its mission. This program provides Corporate Partners with enhanced visibility and highlights their commitment to diversity and women’s empowerment through their sponsorship of key YWCA events. The program allows for more efficient planning and budgeting for both the sponsor and YWCA.

Key Program Features:

Each Corporate Partner commits to a minimum annual contribution through event sponsorship. The corporate partner has the discretion to determine their sponsorship level for either or both of YWCA’s major special events (the Ricky Byrdsong Memorial Race Against Hate and the YWomen Leadership Awards) based on what they feel will provide the most value to their organization.

In exchange for this support, YWCA Evanston North Shore provides year-round recognition of Corporate Partners on its website, in our print and e-newsletters, on signage at all YWCA special events, and in YWCA's lobby.

The program is flexible. Each Corporate Partner can exchange promotion ideas with YWCA Evanston/North Shore as both organizations seek to maximize the power of the partnership. Every year-long pledge can be paid in installments on a customized payment schedule.

The benefits of Corporate Partnership include:

  • the ability to create a more impactful relationship with a respected organization with national name recognition
  • the opportunity to model a positive image of social responsibility
  • enhanced visibility and the chance to reach thousands in north suburban Chicago communities
  • more efficient allocation of promotion dollars
  • easier budgeting and planning with the year-long pledge
  • year-round recognition and exposure through YWCA website, newsletter, event print materials, and signage at events and in YWCA's lobby
