BCCSAUnited Way of Broward County's Women United, founded in the spring of 2010, mobilizes United Way of Broward County’s women donors to become powerful philanthropists and "change leaders" for our community.  As a Leadership Donor ($1,000 donation or more annually), women begin their journey of participation and WU membership into a group of dedicated women like no other.

The primary mission of Women United is to educate and empower women of all ages in growth opportunities through civic leadership and benefits for the "common good" when we share our time and talent to support philanthropic endeavors.

The WU Steering Committee leads members to participate in fundraising, advocate work, and volunteering for a variety of activities, events and sessions that all enhance the overall mission of United Way of Broward County and its transforming work in our community.

Your member experience will allow you, but not limit you, to the following benefits:

  • Strong Community Connections: Meet and connect with other business and commmunity leaders who share a like-minded spirit of philanthropy and building a strong community in which to work, play and live.
  • Productive Networking: Your attendance to WU events, like "Power of the Purse", the Annual Magnolia Luncheon and other exclusive activities, will give you the perfect platform to grow your business in still the most powerful marketing tool to date, "face-to-face" networking.
  • Give-Back and Volunteer: Whether mentoring, event team participation, or serving a cause...every woman works together to leave a legacy that empowers the next generation of leaders of our community.
  • Stay informed: Receive our quarterly e-newsletter and read about key issues impacting our community and learn how your investment of time, talent and resource is making a difference for the common good of all.
