News & Events from the YWCA


YWCA Saskatoon is pleased to announce that PotashCorp will return as the title sponsor for the Women of Distinction Awards® Dinner in 2015.

Now in its 34th year, the Women of Distinction Awards® Dinner is the most significant annual fundraising event for YWCA Saskatoon, with increasing levels of success over the years. All proceeds are designated to YWCA Saskatoon for essential programs and services for women and their families, right here in our local community. The sponsorship of PotashCorp and other corporate sponsors is both an investment in community development, and a unique celebration of women’s achievement.

For 2015, additional sponsorship opportunities are available. The awards dinner takes place on Thursday, May 28, and award nominations are open until March 15.

Last year, corporate sponsorship of the Women of Distinction Awards® Dinner helped provide emergency housing for 950 women, youth and children in the Crisis Shelter, enriched early childhood education for preschoolers, access to fitness programming for low income women, and a fresh start for 14 women in the Turning Points transitional housing program.

The YWCA Women of Distinction Awards® are recognized nationally as one of the most prestigious awards for women. Since 1982, Saskatoon’s Women of Distinction Awards® have honoured hundreds of women for their inspirational leadership and extraordinary contributions to our community.
