ABOUT WOMEN UNITED:
Women United is a global, growing force of more than 70,000 women dedicated to creating a world of opportunity – for everyone. We are a diverse, vibrant community, bound together by a powerful sense of belonging – to each other, to United Way’s mission, and to the community we call home.

WHAT WE DO:
Far from being transactional donors, women get involved, shake things up and make great change. Locally, we have identified education (with an emphasis on early literacy) as our signature issue. As a member, you will have opportunities to network and collaborate with business and community leaders at exclusive events. You may choose to volunteer alongside others who share your passion for helping. Women United has been structured to provide opportunities for involvement that accommodate diverse lifestyles and schedules. Your level of involvement is completely up to you.  

MEMBERSHIP CRITERIA:
Your annual leadership gift to United Way of Escambia County of $1,000+ automatically qualifies you for Women United. You may also qualify with an annual gift of $500-999 when you commit to 25 hours of community service within the education focus area. Your annual gift may be an individual gift, joint gift (combined with a spouse/partner), or magnified by matching funds from your employer.
