The YWCA of Northwest Georgia has been selected to participate in The Allstate Foundation Purple Purse Challenge. The Allstate Foundation will be donating $500,000 to ignite public awareness and fundraising for charities like the YWCA of Northwest Georgia, benefitting domestic violence survivors. The charity that raises the most throughout the Challenge will get a $100,000 donation. We’re out to raise as much money as possible for our cause so we can win the $100,000 grand prize donation.

how much is enough?
In 2010, the YWCA set out under the leadership of our Board and Staff, and under the guidance of external counsel on a $7.18 million capital campaign. The total cost includes construction, furniture, and interest expense on the loan. There is currently $6,621,881 committed to date, which includes donors from the County and Federal Government, Foundations, Corporations, Individuals, and our Board Members. With the funds raised to date we have successfully completed the building of 12 new transitional housing apartments and the expansion and renovation of our counseling/training facilities, computer lab, and existing office space.
We expect the success of this project will only further our reputation and outreach within the community as the leader for advocacy and services for those recovering from situations of domestic violence and sexual assault. We expect to serve an increased number of women and children annually and know that all renovated spaces – counseling facilities, office space, and shelter – will allow us to do this in a cost-efficient way that is warm and welcoming to these victims as they seek to heal.
The YWCA of Northwest Georgia is committed to the completion of the renovation of our facility and shelter for those we serve in our community - victims of domestic violence and sexual assault. We have raised over $6.7 million. Less than $500,000 is needed to move forward with our renovation. We need your help to finish what we have started!
