Save the date for our next Interviews With Inspiring Women event, Wednesday, August 22 at Royal Manchester Golf Links.





Purpose: To unite women and demonstrate their power to effect positive change as philanthropists, role models, mentors and leaders.

Women United  is a group where, regardless of age and background, women can come together to impact the lives of those in York County through volunteer projects, mentoring and hands-on leadership. Women in York County who currently contribute to United Way of York County and fall into the Membership Criteria below are invited to join this group of women.

Help us support #yorkreads initiatives in York County!
Women United strives to build a stronger community by promoting literacy and lifelong learning. In May 2018, a Little Free Library was installed at the Bob Hoffman Branch of the YMCA of York and York County, in Dover. Supported by Women United members, the library is just one of United Way of York County's #yorkreads initiatives, which offer an additional outlet to distribute age-appropriate books to children and families who may otherwise not have access, and to encourage reading in the home.
At each Women United event, look for the table set up to collect new and gently used books that will support this Little Free Library, and help us to create more opportunities for reading!

Membership Criteria
  • Currently contribute $500 or more annually to the United Way of York County, or
  • Pledge to step up my gift to reach $500 annually within 3 years, or
  • Become a new contributor and agree to step up to $500 annually within 3 years.
