EmBe aims to empower women and families to enrich their lives. Your support helps us continue this work in our community.

EmBe Annual Fund

Gifts to the Annual Fund will support all four pillars: Childcare, Youth, Women, and Aquatics. EmBe serves over 12,000 individuals annually, and your donation makes this possible. The Annual Fund supports the overall mission of EmBe, and contributions of any amount make an impact.

Corporate Sponsorships

EmBe has a variety of sponsorship opportunities, including community events like In Her Shoes and Tribute to Women, along with specific opportunities within our four pillars. Let the community know that your business supports the mission of EmBe.

For more information on corporate sponsorships, please contact Susanne Gale at sgale@embe.org or call 605-681-9834.


EmBe assists families in our childcare centers with over $400,000 in scholarships annually, and your donation will support this effort. With the cost of childcare on the rise, contributions to our childcare pillar will assist our mission of serving and educating children in our community.

Youth Programs

Girls on the Run, First Lego League, Volleyball, and our Rise2Raise Collective, to name a few, are empowering our youth to make a difference. All youth programs strive to teach our young people how to become a leader, a team member and focus on their mental health. Donations to our youth pillar allow us to offer programming to all youth in our community.

Women’s Programming

Dress for Success, Women to the Workforce, Making Cent$, and boutique styling are programs that aim to give women the tools to obtain employment and move to the next level in their careers. Dress for Success programming is available to all women in our community at any stage of their life. Donations to our women’s pillar ensure that Dress for Success continues at no cost to the participant.

Women’s Leadership Program

We aim to give women the tools to network with others and reach their full potential. Our Women’s Leadership program allows women to seek development opportunities in their personal and professional lives. Donations help provide scholarships to women who cannot pay the full tuition of our leadership programs.


The EmBe pool has been a staple in the community since 1965 and leads the Sioux Falls aquatics community with its expert instruction and training in the region. Donations to our aquatics pillar assist in scholarships to those in need and the ability to offer training and lessons to members of our community.

Leaving a Legacy

Planned giving is a way to ensure a future donation will support EmBe’s mission. Significant gifts provide opportunities and excellence across all our programs or your area of interest. Make an impact for generations by starting a scholarship or endowment, making a memorial, or estate gift.
