Many members of our community hold cherished memories of their experiences at the YWCA. Whether it was learning to swim, participating in before-and-after school programs or attending summer camps, the YWCA has touched the lives of countless individuals. Today, it continues to offer childcare, wellness, and advocacy. However, the Gettysburg YWCA is currently facing a critical need for funding. To address this challenge, the YWCA has launched its annual Hallmark Sponsorship campaign, reaching out to both businesses and individuals for support.

“We want to remind people of the invaluable role the YWCA has played in their lives and emphasize the importance of ensuring its strength for future generations,” said Board President Lyne Aurand.

Board members and YWCA ambassadors are actively engaging with businesses and individuals to enlist them as YWCA Hallmark Sponsors. Various levels of financial commitment are available, allowing sponsors to tailor their support according to their budgets. Each sponsorship level offers benefits such as prominently displayed logos on the YWCA website, signage in the building, and other perks.

“Our Hallmark Sponsorship campaign is crucial given our current financial needs. We are striving to build a sustainable future for the YWCA, and community support is more vital than ever,” Aurand said. “We are immensely grateful to Crouse Electric for their sponsorship this year and for their ongoing commitment to the YWCA.”

Crouse Electric is currently undertaking a significant project to upgrade the lighting at the YWCA. This initiative involves installing energy-efficient lighting that includes dimming, upgraded emergency and exit lighting, switches, ceiling tiles, and more.

“We extend our heartfelt appreciation to Crouse Electric for their generous support and dedication to the YWCA,” Aurand said.

While Hallmark Sponsorships serve as a cornerstone of YWCA funding, the board is also exploring other avenues to address financial challenges. The Leadership Team, established following the departure of the CEO, has forged partnerships with local organizations to provide additional support during this critical period.


“We believe these partnerships will greatly benefit both the YWCA and the community at large,” Aurand added.
