- Encourage women’s growth, leadership and power to attain a common vision for peace, justice, freedom and dignity for all people.
- Help children attain their greatest potential.
- Create an environment to assist in the physical and mental health and well-being of women and their families.
- Pursue the elimination of racism wherever it exists.
Grants will be awarded through a competitive online application process. New this year, YW Legacy applicants will apply using the community foundation’s standard grant application. Applications must be submitted online by 11:59 p.m. on December 15, 2018, and grants will be awarded by January 18.

The YW Legacy Fund was established in 2006 by board members of the former YWCA of Salina. Assets from the sale of the YWCA building and previously established endowments were combined to create the fund. Former YWCA supporters have also contributed to the fund.
