The YWCA’s Tribute to Women of Influence (TWIN) event honors women who have made significant contributions to their fields, and recognizes those organizations that support such achievements. 2011 marks the 20th anniversary of TWIN. Leading up to this year’s September 15th event, we will highlight each of our 25 incredible TWIN Honorees. If you would like more information about the TWIN event, or would like to reserve a ticket, please visitwww.ywcaofasheville.org.
Women for Women (WfW) is a giving circle that joins women together in an engaging and meaningful way to give back to their community. By combining their financial resources and working with others, WfW makes high-impact grants to improve the lives of women and girls. WfW invests in programs that demonstrate sustainable and measurable change, address causes or prevention of poverty rather than symptoms, assist women in overcoming barriers to economic independence, and advocate for social change for women at various levels of society. WfW is making a difference and changing lives of women on many different levels. The giving circle is a powerful example of collective action and empowerment through working together. The end result is hope and possibility for women and girls across our region.
