Women in Philanthropy
News & Events
United Way’s Women in Philanthropy has partnered with Sacramento County to help collect items needed for the Foster Youth Emancipation Basket program. Many foster youth emancipating from the system do not have necessary household items to get started on their own, and we want to help make that transition a little bit easier.

When foster youth emancipate from the system, their futures are bleak. The statistics speak for themselves:
• More than 50% have no earnings in 4 years
• Only 25% are consistently employed
United Way’s Women in Philanthropy is a group of women dedicated to making a dent in those numbers.
