Pillar Society

Strengthen. Support. Sustain.

YWCA Greater Harrisburg’s Pillar Society  

Our great organization needs to stay strong.

The YWCA educates and advocates for women, children, veterans and families in need in the Greater Harrisburg community. Eliminating racism, empowering women and transforming the lives of over 22,000 individuals each year, the YWCA provides safe housing, crisis services, life skills, job training, childcare and more.

To be strong for those in need, we must also nurture our ability to meet organizational needs as they arise in any area – from programs to the very walls of our beloved Kunkel Mansion property. This means securing significant unrestricted funds.
The Pillar Society was launched to meet this goal – and welcome community members who are ready to lead our giving and help us pave the path forward.

Our sustaining members deserve our recognition and thanks.
