Virtual Purse & Passion April 30

April 6, 2020

YWCA Central Alabama's annual Purse & Passion is the YW's largest fundraiser. It raises more than $600,000 each year to support domestic violence services; child and youth development programs; and safe, affordable housing. We are getting close to that goal. There is still time to give!

With the arrival of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have found ourselves in an unprecedented and difficult time. Sadly, for many members in our community, home may not be a safe place to shelter. Calls to the YWCA crisis line have DOUBLED in recent weeks. YWCA Central Alabama is not closed to victims of domestic abuse. We are answering crisis calls, and we need your help to spread our mission.

The 21st annual Purse & Passion is our first to be hosted virtually. Watch a replay of the April 30, 2020, livestream. We appreciate the hard work of our table captains, who are members of the YWCA Board of Directors and the community-at-large. Their guests, our sponsors, and every donor help us meet the needs of those the YW serves.

This fundraising event helps us help women, children, and families chart a course for a brighter future.
