Women’s Initiative networks and mobilizes women to become leaders, philanthropists, and advocates on issues concerning women and children.

An affinity group of United Way since 2001, Women's Initiative has inspired hundreds of women to:

  • Attend leadership development events
  • Contribute their time and talent to numerous volunteer opportunities
  • Invest over $1.5 million dollars toward programs that impact women and children

In addition to providing personal and professional development opportunities for women, we currently support two children's programs: WordShop and Imagination Library.
In 2015, over 600 children participated in our collaborative story-writing workshops and we mailed 19,194 books to Toledo homes.

We offer many opportunities to Inspire, Network and Act! When you give $250 or more to United Way of Greater Toledo, you can join Women's Initiative and any of our other affinity groups
