Persimmon Donor Circle

A- A A+


We are thrilled to announce the launch of the Persimmon Donor Circle. Named after YWCA’s signature color, the Persimmon Donor Circle is the leadership giving society of YWCA Glendale, a collective of individuals who are dedicated to advancing our organization’s mission of eliminating racism and empowering women. The unrestricted funds raised through the Persimmon Circle allow YWCA Glendale to be nimble and responsive to the needs of our community. Circle donors will be invited to private events to learn more about how we are stewarding their funds and innovating within our core programs to address the most pressing issues that survivors and young girls are facing. 


  • Join a community of engaged supporters with a shared vision of creating change and promoting peace, justice, freedom and dignity for all.

  • Invitations to private Persimmon events

  • Receive curated updates and sneak peeks into program expansions, trends and innovations

  • Listing on website, annual report and YWCA Glendale event materials

By contributing $500+ in a fiscal year (July – June), you will automatically become a member of the Persimmon Donor Circle. As a Persimmon member, you will be invited to special events featuring civic and business leaders, recognized in our annual reports and on our website, and provided with advance ticket sales for our major events.


Thank you to our founding members; we are so appreciative. We would love to welcome you into the circle, and help us to further our ability to respond to our community in uncertain times.
