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.
Why the name change?
The name Women United is a clear call to action for women of all ages and backgrounds to come together for an important cause.
While our focus will remain the same, we will now be part of a global group of women, all working on their local community’s most pressing issues, most of which are related to children. Our Women United members are making sure local foster kids stay in school and on track, and our members are setting high expectations for what foster kids can accomplish and ensuring their support systems are strong.
Locally, Women United works to:
- Raise funds for special bank accounts that help foster youth save for rent, transportation, textbooks and more.
- Lead life skills workshops and trainings to help foster youth understand balancing checkbooks how to manage finances, navigate the college system, prepare for interviews, cooking and more.
- Participate in exclusive volunteer experiences and networking events.
