Women’s Legacy Council

Women Who Rule 2015

Women’s Legacy Council mobilizes women to become powerful philanthropists through leadership, fundraising and advocacy with education and engagement. By leveraging skills, relationships and resources in support of United Way, they make a profound difference in the lives of women.  Members contribute annually to United Way at a leadership level of $1,200 or more.

Our Goals:

  • Educating women about philanthropic involvement and leadership, defined in the broadest terms as investing time, talent and treasure in the issues they care most about
  • Engaging more women in the work of United Way to transform our community

Our Focus:

Transportation – It’s more than just a ride!

For many low-income women in our community finding dependable transportation is a major barrier.  This lack of dependable transportation is often one of the most significant barriers to finding and keeping employment and accessing other services, such as a local food bank, health services, childcare and life skills training programs.

Women’s Legacy Council is committed to raising awareness about the transportation issues facing low-income women and providing critical support to women who don’t have a car or other means to reach the services they need.  Since its inception in 2009, Women’s Legacy Council  has helped hundreds of women and children in our four counties receive transportation assistance.

Benefits of Membership:

  • Network and meet with other business and community leaders who share a like-minded spirit of philanthropy through professional and social activities
  • Opportunities to mentor others and empower the next generation
