Women United



WE ARE WOMEN UNITED - Leading the charge. Inspiring the change.

United Way of Thurston County (UWTC) fights for the health, education and financial stability of every person in our community. Any woman who makes United Way part of her philanthropy has the opportunity to become part of a group of dynamic women working together to solve urgent, local community problems — Women United.


In addition to their support for UWTC, Women United also works to identify local issues that need urgent attention within the larger United Way focus areas. Women United’s current priority is to support programs providing resources for a growing and vulnerable population: families with children who are currently homeless or on the verge of becoming homeless.
