About Women of Achievement
Women of Achievement was founded by the YWCA in 1993 to recognize the work of women in Salina. After the YWCA’s closure in 2004, Girl Scouts of Kansas Heartland took on the program. Later, it became the YW Legacy Fund at the Greater Salina Community Foundation. This bi-annual event has honored 107 Women of Achievement, 4 Young Women of Achievement, and 4 Lifetime Achievement recipients in a variety of fields. All proceeds from the recognition event will be added to the YW Legacy fund. Grants are given to individuals and organizations that support women, children, and the eradication of racism. Since 2007, over $386,000 has been granted from the YW Legacy Fund.
