Become a Women United Member

Women United is a dynamic group of women who recognize the importance of investing in our most precious human capital, the next generation. Each member of this affinity group pledges at a giving level that is comfortable for her--between $250 - $5,000 or more a year for a three-year commitment to United Way's community school initiative.

Women United supports United Way’s position that every child, regardless of what zip code they live in, deserves the supports and resources needed to excel and thrive in school…and therefore in life. Community schools focus on removing the many barriers low-income children face, every day, keeping them from achieving academically. With these barriers removed, children come to school ready and eager to learn!

Initial Focus: McKinley Elementary

"Women United for Community Schools initial focus has been to support both McKinley Elementary and Union City Elementary. Together, Women United members are providing $135,000 annually as a funding partner for both schools and they are providing additional support to meet the funding gaps at other United Way Community Schools. The Community Schools Model brings resources into the school building that address the specific barriers preventing students from being successful. Community Schools become hubs, rich with resources for students and their families."​
