The YWA Foundation

Create momentum. Change lives.

In 1993, a small group of empowered young women made a  promise to the community -- to support activities that give other young women the opportunity to educate, lead, network and serve. Today, YWA's members continue to fulfill this promise by helping the next generation of female leaders reach their full potential.

The Young Women’s Alliance Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization created by the Young Women’s Alliance in 1997. The Foundation empowers tomorrow’s female leaders by awarding educational scholarships for girls and women and providing grants to the organizations that serve them, ultimately inspiring all women to give back to their community. 

The YWA Foundation Annual Report provides visibility into where and how our fundraising efforts are making a difference in the Austin community and includes details about the success of our 2012-2013 fiscal year. This year's report includes an overview of the Foundation and how it is supported by the Young Women's Alliance, information about the amazing young ladies that received tuition assistance through our scholarships, an overview of where we raise the money to support our giving initiatives, and how much and what kind of Gifts we make to women in the community.

Members can get more involved in the Foundation by helping to select this year's community grant and scholarship recipients, participating in the annual Foundation Fundraising Campaign, or attending and promoting events that support the Foundation throughout the year.  

Preparing and empowering young women for the future takes more than dedicated leaders, a passionate board and committed members. It takes friends and community partners who understand the mission that guides us and the vision that makes us the best. It takes partners who share our commitment.
