What is Women United?

Women United is part of a global network of more than 70,000 women in 165 communities across six countries, all dedicated to improving lives and creating stronger communities.

Through Women United, Rappahannock United Way is bringing together local women who will fight for the health, education, and financial stability of every person in our community. Women United members are donors who go above and beyond to invest their resources, time, and talent into addressing our community's critical issues. Using directed gifts, volunteerism, and issue-focused fundraising, these women will "lead the charge and inspire the change" right here in the Fredericksburg region.
