Purse & Passion is the YWCA’s single largest fundraiser, having raised more than $5 million since 2000. Last year, the YW celebrated the 16th anniversary of Purse & Passion. For more than a century, the YWCA has been responding to the needs of women, children, and families. Purse & Passion helps to fund the YW’s initiatives, including child development programs for homeless children, affordable housing for families, a broad array of domestic violence services and social justice programs.
