Legacy Foundation Celebration

The Power of Community!

Thursday, October 10
San Francisco

Registration closed

As IWF members, we know the power of community. 

For 25 years, the Legacy Foundation has convened and grown a vibrant Legacy community. We are passionate about furthering the status and leadership of women in the San Francisco Bay Area. Once a year, we gather to celebrate.

You are a valued member of our Legacy community.

Please join us on Thursday, October 10, 2019 for the third annual Legacy Foundation Celebration. This special occasion purposefully precedes the annual International Day of the Girl (October 11).

On this evening, we celebrate our Legacy partners, local leaders they support, IWF NorCal members, and invited guests. Journalist and IWF NorCal member Jan Yanehiro helps us weave together the evening. Highlights include:

  • 2019 Legacy Partner Rise Up will share highlights from their Gender Equity Initiative (GEI) in California. Our Legacy grant contributed to Rise Up’s GEI Accelerator, furthering the work of 20 local leaders fighting to improve the status of women in their communities.

  • Rise Up leader Sarah Johnston will be our featured speaker. Sarah is a Fresno-based community leader and advocate for victims and survivors of human trafficking. She will share how with Rise Up's support she's working to protect human trafficked survivors and improve legislation to combat this lesser-known form of modern-day slavery. 

  • Members of the Legacy Community—past Legacy Partners Year Up Bay Area and Girl Scouts of Northern California, as well as Legacy grant recipients Girl Ventures and FLY—will also be invited to attend.

Most importantly, the evening allows IWF members and Legacy donors to connect and share giving stories. If you know someone who is interested in IWF and would like to experience being part of this extraordinary community, this is a wonderful event.

The Celebration kicks off the Legacy Foundation’s 2019 fall fundraising campaign, including our annual Silent Auction which features one-of-a-kind experiences donated by fellow IWF NorCal members. We hope you can join us.
