United 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.
