Women’s Initiative

Women’s Initiative of United Way’s mission is to mobilize and network women to become leaders, philanthropists and advocates on issues concerning women and children. We do this through professional development, networking and community impact-centered events that help educate women on our community’s needs while connecting them with opportunities to see the need and create a direct impact.


United Way of Greater Toledo donors who give $250 or more can become a member of Women’s Initiative and gain access to networking, leadership development and volunteer opportunities, as well as other United Way donor benefits such as Donor Appreciation Rewards.
