Women United™

A Women’s Giving Circle

A Women’s Giving Circle

Women United is a gender-diverse Leadership Giving program, where members have made a gift of $1200 or more. Women United showcases the philanthropic power of women by connecting local philanthropists to issues that matter most to them, and to each other.

Women United provides a new way for current and/or potential donors to get involved with issues that are important to them beyond a financial contribution. We are seeking to promote inclusion, while engaging donors in ways that matter to them. This gender inclusive affinity group is much like GenNext, where we are fostering volunteerism, resulting in more meaningful and consistent donor engagement. Members would have the opportunity to participate on a committee that would evolve as members desire. Networking and building relationships among members themselves is another great benefit of joining.

If you want to make a difference in the lives of women in need and build relationships with other like-minded women donors – please consider joining Women United.

Our mission

To leverage our time, talent and resources to empower women in our community to build strong, independent lives. United we are stronger. Together we can create a world full of opportunity for all women.

Our vision

A powerful force for social change, where women are key drivers of philanthropy in local communities, across the country and around the world through both giving and volunteering.
