Women United

Our mission is to encourage, enlighten and engage women, children and families in our community.

Leading the charge, inspiring the change.

Women United is a global force of more than 75,000 women making a $1.5 billion impact. We are bound together by our dedication to improving our community and creating opportunity.

Here on the Cape and Islands, our mission is to engage driven, passionate women in philanthropy and service that strengthen local families and encourages career development and economic self-sufficiency for women.

Fundraising proceeds support our Community Baby Shower held each spring, Reach out and Read, and educational grants that encourage career development  and economic self sufficiency for women.

Since our launch in 2017, Women United has:

  • Invested more than $75,000 into the local community through programming and grants

  • Established our Strong from the Start initiative, focusing on the needs of children ages zero to three

  • Placed more than 5,000 books in the hands of children each year

  • Supported more than 100 families through community baby showers

  • Created scholarships and financial assistance fund for college students
