Evanston/North Shore

Leadership Circle

YWCA Evanston/North Shore Leadership Circle is our premier donor community, providing an opportunity for individuals to make a deeper connection with our mission. Leadership Circle donors are engaged members of the YWCA family, contributing resources that build our capacity to grow and sustain mission-based programs and services. Leadership Circle membership is available at any of the following levels:

  • $10,000 President's level
  • $5,000 Leader level
  • $2,500 Advocate level
  • $1,000 Partner level

The Time is Now

Leadership Circle gifts are especially critical in supporting and sustaining our work in the current economic climate, because of shrinking government funding. Your gift impacts thousands of women, children and families, and is an investment in our future.

Benefits of Membership

Leadership Circle members are included in our most engaging leadership activities, including educational lectures, new program initiatives and briefings by YWCA staff. However, the most rewarding benefit comes from knowing that your gift is making a difference in our communities.

Other benefits of membership include:

  • Leadership Circle member forums
  • Leadership Circle donor reception
  • Listing in the YWCA annual report and on our website.
