WE ARE WOMEN UNITED.

As an integral part of United Way, Women United™ advocates for the health, education, and financial stability of every person in every community. We are a diverse, vibrant community, bound together by the powerful sense of belonging – to each other, to the organization’s mission, and to the communities we call home. Our powerful, network of women leaders, lives united against the most critical issues facing our Halton & Hamilton communities.

Women United™ members who make a social investment of $1,200 or more annually to United Way Halton & Hamilton are recognized on the Leadership Honour Roll.

WHY WOMEN?

A powerful philanthropic force – women are more likely to both give, and give more across almost every charitable subsector. Throughout the years, the power of our women leaders remains irrefutable – today women are making a deeper and broader difference in their communities.

WHAT WE DO?

Women United members leverage their time, talent, and resources to empower women in our community to build strong independent lives. Women United is a powerful force for social change, where women are key drivers of philanthropy in Halton & Hamilton through both giving and volunteering.
