Who We Are

As an integral part of United Way, Women United® fights for the health, education, and financial stability of every person in every community. We are a diverse, vibrant, and international community, bound together by a powerful sense of belonging — to each other, to the organization’s mission, and to the local communities we call home. Our powerful, global network of women leaders, over 70,000 strong nationwide, lives united against the most critical issues.

We Ignite Change

We don't stand by. We're raising our voices, rolling up our sleeves, and leaving our fingertips on a legacy of change. Communities need champions who understand their problems, see their potential, and will offer solutions that make a difference. Through United Way, we have unparalleled resources to make lasting local change. We ignite the power of women - who bring passion, expertise, and resources needed to get things done.

Why Engage

As part of the organization, you'll have opportunities to network and collaborate with key business and community leaders. This is your chance to learn about the key issues impacting our community, advocate, volunteer, give and make a difference.
