Give Back MKE Live 2021: YWCA

We are using the month of December to celebrate local organizations worthy of your donations.


Find out more on the MilMag Facebook Livestream on Dec. 3 at noon.

What We Do:

  • YWCA Southeast Wisconsin’s (YWCA SEW) mission is to eliminate racism and empower women, promoting peace, justice, freedom and dignity for all. YWCA SEW envisions a thriving, inclusive and just Southeast Wisconsin defined by racial and gender equity as the foundation for healthy communities. It serves Southeast Wisconsin individuals and families, businesses and sister organizations in the social sector.
  • YWCA SEW programs are integrated deliberately, providing a network of services including personal financial management, adult education, women’s professional development and racial and gender equity programming. Programming is available to all, but the majority of participants are women and their families.
  • 2022 initiatives include expanded racial justice community classes and blueprints for next steps, as well as digital skill-learning opportunities in the economic empowerment programming, assuring that adult learners have greater job opportunities and can be engaged in all aspects of life from personal financial management to supervising children’s homework.

Where Your Money Goes:

  • Donations fund YWCA SEW’s economic empowerment and racial/gender justice programs, including personal financial management, adult education and women’s professional development. Many of YWCA SEW’s program grants require matching funds from donors – together your gifts make an impact.
