Power of the Purse is a month-long community-building fundraising and awareness event for all YWCA Greater Lafayette programs:

This is an opportunity for everyone in our community and anyone who supports YWCA’s mission of empowering women and eliminating racism to show their support through advocacy and action. Our 45+ team of directors, managers, advocates and volunteers shows up 365 days each year to ensure that all operations continue. Your objective is to galvanize the community to bring awareness to our mission and advocate for the 10K+ clients we serve across all programming annually so YWCA Greater Lafayette can continue the work that needs to be done.

  • Team Persimmon Supports the overall YWCA Greater Lafayette mission including, but not limited to, Empowerment Services and Racial & Social Justice Initiatives.
  • Team Pink Supports Women’s Wellness Program, which provides preventative healthcare services, cancer screenings and diagnostic procedures to underinsured and uninsured women.
  • Team Purple Supports Domestic Violence Intervention &Prevention Program, which operates a 30-bed emergency shelter, a 24/7 crisis hotline, support groups, legal advocacy and more.

Your support today saves lives tomorrow.
