The Persimmon Society
Named after YWCA’s signature color, the Persimmon Society is the leadership giving society of YW Boston, made up of our most consistent and generous supporters. By donating $1,000 or more in a calendar year, you automatically become a member of the Society. As a Persimmon member, you will be invited to special events featuring civic and business leaders, recognized in our annual reports and on our website, and provided with advanced ticket sales for our major events. Supporters who give more than $5,000 in one calendar year are part of the President’s Circle of the Persimmon Society.
