Circle of Women

Thank you to everyone who attended our 15th Annual Circle of Women! We will update this page with results as soon as possible!

If you attended and felt compelled to join the Empowerment Society, you can do so here, or contact Maggie to learn more!

The YWCA Madison Circle of Women fundraising event shows the power of our individual circles to positively impact the larger community. Each guest is asked to give $100…many give significantly more! Through these individual efforts, combined with sponsorship dollars, we raise more than $150,000 during one luncheon!

Many people make this possible. A huge thank you to our Table Captains, Sponsors and guests!
