Help us meet our goal of raising $13,000 on #GivingTuesday by creating your own custom peer-to-peer fundraising account. The peer-to-peer fundraising account allows you to customize your fundraising page by adding a goal, a photo of yourself, and a blurb about why the YW is important to you. From your Peer-to-Peer account you are able to send emails to your contacts, share your participation through your social media accounts and thank anyone that donates to your campaign.

If just thirteen individuals raise $250 each, we will already be a quarter of the way to our goal of $13,000. Why not be one of the 13?

Another easy way to help spread the word about the YWCA Elgin’s #GivingTuesday campaign is by changing the signature line of your email. Your signature line could read "I will support the YWCA Elgin on #GivingTuesday, November 28th! For more information visit,"
