About Women United

United Way KFL&A is part of a world-wide connection called Women United. Women United brings together like-minded women who want to use their skills, talents and resources to contribute to their community in a significant way. Women United builds on the strong legacy of Women in Leadership in our region with members giving independently to the United Way, or jointly with their spouses or partners.

Local Network:

United Way KFL&A has approximately 400 women Leaders of the Way (donors who give $1,200 or more) who make a difference in the community by supporting local programs that have a significant impact. The goal of Women United is to bring even more women and resources together under the United Way umbrella in order to change more lives for the better locally. Women Leaders can be active as philanthropists at many different level starting from $1,200-4,999 a year.

Local Issues, Local Impact: 

Women Leaders get a chance to join other local women for a deep dive beneath the issues that affect people in the community.  They learn more about local issues and programs serving women and the most vulnerable in the community. They get opportunities to participate in discussions to help shape solutions to these issues.

Women United Leadership Challenge Grant

United Way KFL&A is delighted to announce that in addition to this year’s Leadership Challenge Grant, a special Women United Challenge Grant will also be offered during the 2021 campaign. Thanks to a generous donation from Jessica Bayne Hogan, new female Leadership donors can increase the impact of their gift. 

The announcement was made by Women United co-chair Jane Lapointe at the first Women United event of 2021 on September 20.

Under the existing Leadership Challenge Grant, supporters who increase their campaign contribution to $1,200 or make a new $1,200 gift will see their donation matched. With the addition of the Women United grant, women donors would see their donation matched by both grants – tripling their gift to United Way KFL&A.

"I was delighted to learn that an amazingly generous couple stepped up to offer this year’s general challenge grant and as such I was able to extend an additional matching to the incredible women of our community. Over the past few years I have had the pleasure of co-chairing Women United along with Jane and have again been awed and inspired by the level of compassion, engagement and genuine interest of the women involved in asking how can we do better as a community to fill existing gaps and support all of those in our community."
