If you ATTENDED the event, we want to know what you thought of it! Take this survey today.

If you DID NOT ATTEND the event Friday, your opinions are just as important! Take this survey and give us your thoughts!

Thank you for taking the time to give us your feedback. While this event brought us a step closer to our goal of 240 people signing up for the YWCA 24 for 24 Pledge, we still have a long way to go!

With all the hype surrounding “24: The Underground,” you may be wondering “what’s this all about?” The underground is part of the YWCA of Charleston’s newest initiative – the YWCA 24 for 24 Pledge. We’re asking you to pledge $24 a month for 24 months to help ensure that the YWCA’s critical social service programs serving thousands of women, children and families each year will exist for generations to come. The greatest thing about this opportunity? Dollar for dollar, your contribution will be matched through the YWCA $2 Million Challenge.

In today’s economy, critical services that empower individuals to become self-sufficient and productive members of society are needed more than ever. These vital services such as affordable childcare, education, job readiness, counseling and financial planning – combined with meeting basic needs like food, shelter, clothing and safety – are provided by the YWCA of Charleston. To many of us, $24 a month may mean buying a few less lattes or packing lunch rather than eating out. However, to the people the YWCA serves, it can change lives.

Take the pledge today.
