Happy New Year to all Women United Members,

In recognition of our 10th year, we celebrated by givin$60,000 in grants in November for a total of $372,825 year to date. Congratulations to you our members and donors!

Our ten-year anniversary presents a perfect time to pause and reflect on how to make the next 10 years as successful as the first. To that end, we have engaged Holly Hatcher, Hatcher Consulting, to facilitate this review and visioning exercise.

Over the next couple of months, Holly will:

  • Scan women’s giving circle models and best practices;
  • Conduct focus groups with founders, steering committee members and random groups of current, past, and potential members;
  • Ask you to complete a succinct and important anonymous survey;
  • Present findings and recommendations at a Women United Spring Event (TBD).

This is an important time for Women United. On behalf of the steering committee, thank you for your interest and participation.
