Welcome Women United!
United Way California Capital Region's Women in Philanthropy is now Women United
We are thrilled to announce United Way California Capital Region’s Women in Philanthropy group is now Women United. Women United joins the global Women United network of more than 70,000 women leaders taking action in their communities.
Our local Women United action group is a force of 350 local women and supporters making sure local foster youth are prepared for success in college or career as part of the Square One Project working to end poverty in school.
Thank you for giving BIG during this year’s Big Day of Giving.
Nearly $20,000 was raised in 24 hours! On behalf of the children and families that United Way impacts, THANK YOU!
With the support of Wells Fargo and their matching dollars, we were able to turn your donations into nearly $40,000. The best part – Wells Fargo – has generously agreed to donate the remaining $5,000 to United Way. That means we raised close to $45,000 in 24 hours!
