Women United

Join Women United in fighting poverty

Women United is a diverse, vibrant donor network supporting United Way for Greater Austin. Members are committed to creating a powerful, female-driven philanthropic force to improve early childhood education in Greater Austin. Women United members support United Way’s early childhood education initiatives, part of a community-wide collaboration called Success By 6.

Why Join?

Success in life begins with a quality education, but more than 50% of children in Travis County are not ready for Kindergarten. Donations from Women United connect children from low-income families to high-quality education so they’re ready to succeed in Kindergarten and beyond.

Women United is a community of like-minded women passionate about early childhood education. When you join Women United, you’ll have opportunities to network and collaborate with a diverse group of influential business and community leaders at exclusive events, all while learning about critical local issues and impactful local solutions.

Women United members have access to exclusive volunteer and advocacy opportunities. Volunteer with our Success By 6 partners along with others looking to create change, and advocate for key community issues at the local and state level.
