Women United is a network of like-minded women who inspire and motivate others through philanthropy, leadership, and volunteerism. Members mobilize the caring power of women as they work to improve the Health and Wellness, Education, and Financial Stability of individuals & families in Buffalo & Erie County. 
A powerful philanthropic force, Women United also facilitates conversations and initiatives with the goal of promoting equity and empowerment for women - at work and at home.


Women United members donate $500 or more annually to the United Way of Buffalo & Erie County. Gifts can be made as a one-time donation or spread out throughout the year (weekly, monthly, quarterly).
