You each have a network of influential and powerful Circles. Your understanding of the resources it takes to support a healthy community gives us encouragement as your power of giving and influence is what ultimately makes us successful. Your support of YWCA McLean County does not go unrecognized, and we cannot thank you enough for your solidarity, encouragement, and generosity.

We know we don’t do it alone. Our power comes from those we serve, and it comes from our bold, passionate donors and sponsors who are equally committed to the work of justice. When you support YWCA,you amplify our ability to serve our community and our mission to change the power structures that determine the future. With your support, we will get up and do the work until injustice is rooted out, until institutions are transformed until the world sees women, girls, and people of color the way we do: Equal. Powerful. Unstoppable.

Kaitlyn M. Erdman Memorial WINGS Award

The WINGS Award was created and is funded by past recipients of YWCA's Women of Distinction Award. Although the final Women of Distinction event took place in 2022, WINGS Awards will be incorporated into YWCA's Annual Circle Luncheon moving forward.

Applications have closed.

Women of Distinction have a shared commitment to give back to other women in McLean County so they created this award to encourage development in women, both professionally and personally, through mentoring and financial support. The award is given annually to a Woman to Improve her skills for a Notable purpose which allows her to Grow professionally and to achieve Success.

2024 WINGS Awardees will be honored at Circle, on Thursday, May 16.
