We're 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 going above and beyond to invest their time and talent into addressing our community's critical issues. Through directed gifts and targeted, issue-focused fundraising, these women will lead the charge and inspire the change right here in the Fredericksburg region.
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.
By joining Women United, you'll make a difference through volunteer opportunities, you'll have opportunities to network and collaborate with key business and community leaders, and you'll have the chance to learn about the key issues impacting our community.
Members give $1,000+ annually (or $42/paycheck), undesignated. You can make your contribution via your workplace campaign or using our "Donate" button. Your donation may be spread out over a calendar year using the recurring donation option.
