SINCE 1907, THE YWCA HOUSTON HAS BEEN ON A MISSION TO
ELIMINATE RACISM, EMPOWER WOMEN AND GIRLS, STAND UP FOR SOCIAL JUSTICE, HELP FAMILIES AND STRENGTHEN COMMUNITIES.
It is true that both men and women live in poverty, face discrimination, and must overcome obstacles. However, throughout history—in every country in the world—women and girls face additional obstacles solely because of their gender. Yet, through our programs, we have aided thousands of women and girls economically and empowered them to make positive changes in their lives and communities.
We want to continue our mission to serve women and girls in our community for another 110 years. But we need your support! We ask you join us as a founding member of the Persimmon Club.
Persimmon is our national brand color reflecting the strength and confidence of the YWCA. For YWCA of Houston, each woman we serve has the spirit of persimmon in her. As a founding member, you have the opportunity to embody that spirit of persimmon. The Persimmon Club is a philanthropic group that champions the YWCA of Houston and its mission to eliminate racism and empower women. Your membership will be a symbol of hope and advocacy for pursuing the rights of women and families, fighting on the front-lines of some of our nation’s greatest issues like Civil Rights, Fair Wages, and Sexual Assault. Through your membership, we will stand as a collective voice to fight for legislation which impacts the women and girls we serve. Furthermore, your membership represents the gathering of diverse individuals who all choose to add their voice to the fight for empowerment.
Become a member today. We invite you to become a member with an annual or lifetime gift, 100% of which will go to achieving YWCA's vision of women and girls thriving without obstacles.
If you wonder if your voice matters, it does. What begins as a stream, a mere trickle, can explode into a tidal wave, a deafening force to be reckoned with. This is what you get in return when you become a YWCA of Houston Persimmon Club member: the satisfaction of becoming part of history and shaping the future. One voice alone may not be as powerful but our 110-year history has proven that when we join together, movement happens.
On a mission,
YWCA of Houston
