Rancho Cucamonga, CA – Inland Empire United Way is launching a new affinity group in 2017 – Women United. This group will be a part of the powerful, global network within United Way of 70,000+ women leaders across more than 165 communities and six countries, all focused on building stronger communities. Inland Empire United Way’s Women United would be a diverse community of like-minded women leaders who contribute their personal passions, best ideas, and unique strengths to the mission of building a stronger Inland Empire.
The launch and initial orientation for those interested in being members is planned for November 15.
“Women are a dynamic force in our community and our families alike,” said Alyssa Cotter, director of development. “Bringing Women United to our community will allow us to join together to make a lasting difference in people’s lives in the community where we live, work, and raise our families.”
United Way’s Women United is the largest women’s philanthropic organization in the world. Since 2002, Women United has raised more than $1.5 billion to support the programs and initiatives led by United Way. Together they have focused on providing the building blocks for a better life and a stronger community – Health, Education, and Financial Stability.
Members of Inland Empire United Way’s Women United would be women leaders donating at the Leadership Circle level of $1,000+ per year, and would be encouraged to join sub-committees for direct involvement in the planning and execution of events and volunteer opportunities. Members would meet monthly for networking and social opportunities, educational programs, and volunteer engagements. Members would have the ability to make significant, long-lasting, positive change in the Inland Empire.
Inland Empire United Way is committed to improving the lives and futures of children and families in need by investing in Education, Health, and Financial Stability. We are proud that contributions given local, stay local and an impressive 88% of every dollar is invested in direct program activities. By partnering with a network of local nonprofit organizations, United Way delivers critical services to our community, connects individuals in crisis with needed resources through 2-1-1, and increases the power of local charities by providing dedicated volunteers. www.ieuw.org
