Who We Are
As an integral part of United Way, Women United fights for the health, education, financial stability and safety of every person in every neighborhood. The Chicago chapter of Women United is a group of philanthropic leaders dedicated to finding long term solutions to our regions most complex challenges. We give, advocate, volunteer and network together because lasting change is possible when a diverse and organized group works towards a common goal.
Women United members support our impact in communities across the region by giving at the Leadership Giving level of $1,000 or more annually, along with serving as ambassadors for the work.
Dynamic Women Focused on Positive Change
Women United ignites change. In each community we serve, we tackle the issues that matter most to the people who call it home. We empower each other to leverage our ideas, expertise and resources to transform the very conditions in which people live.
We give, mentor, network, learn, advocate, share, care, volunteer, solve.
At United Way of Metro Chicago, we leverage the expertise, connections and resources to build stronger neighborhoods for a stronger Chicago region. We work with top business, community, philanthropic and civic leaders across greater Chicago and invest in the most effective nonprofit agencies in the region to improve the lives of millions of individuals.
