YWCA of San Diego County holds two signature fundraising events to raise awareness and critical funds for women, men, and children overcoming domestic violence and homelessness.
In the Company of Women is held in the spring, featuring an inspiring keynote speaker and the prestigious Tribute to Women & Industry Awards. Past celebrity speakers have included Angélique Kidjo, Anna Deavere Smith, Camryn Manheim, Laura Dern, Viola Davis, Ashley Judd, Jane Seymour, and many others.
Walk a Mile in Her Shoes is held in the fall, challenging men, women, and children to literally walk a mile in a pair of heels through downtown San Diego. Individuals, teams, and companies compete to raise the most funds for our Becky’s House domestic violence programs through friends, family and colleagues.
YWCA maintains a four-star rating from Charity Navigator, America’s leading independent and objective charity evaluator, indicating excellence in governance, accountability, transparency, and fiscal responsibility.
