Sweet Success

JOIN OUR MISSION.

Sweet Success is an annual celebration and fundraiser honoring the oustanding achievements of YWCA St. Paul program participants and volunteers.

This year’s celebration is scheduled for May 30, 2019 at the University of St. Thomas.

BACKGROUND

YWCA St. Paul is a nonprofit organization that was founded in 1907. We are dedicated to eliminating racism, empowering women and promoting peace, justice, freedom and dignity for all.

Sweet Success is an annual celebration and fundraiser. The event includes a social hour, short awards ceremony and inspiring stories of hope, perseverance and, ultimately, sweet success.

IMPACT

YWCA St. Paul has been working for racial and gender equity for more than 110 years. 

Our programs advance racial equity by helping low-income individuals and families—especially women and youth of color—overcome barriers to access and achieve success in areas characterized by significant racial disparities: housing, income and employment, health and wellness, and academic achievement.

Our community events, from community conversations on divisive issues to educational workshops on domestic violence, help inform and bring people together to strengthen our communities.

As a community, we can ensure that all Minnesotans have access to peace, justice, freedom and dignity.
