Women’s Leadership Council

The mission of the United Way Women’s Leadership Council is to empower, embrace, and engage women. We aim to holistically foster the growth and development of women and children in our community by promoting health and well-being.

Your 2013 Investment

Based on a local needs assessment, UWGW has identified six focus areas for best supporting our community. In order to effectively meet these needs, we collaborate with 20 local non-profit health and human services agencies.


If you or someone you know is experiencing a challenging situation and needs assistance – we can help. For 63 years the United Way of Greater Williamsburg has made caring about our community a priority, and that means you!


UWGW maximizes your contribution by investing in local, results-driven programs and initiatives that focus on long-term solutions to our community’s most pressing needs. Since 1949, our accountability standards have been based upon models of transparency and efficiency.

Membership Requirements and Accountability

Annually, all United Ways certify their adherence to standards that include comprehensive requirements for financial reporting, governance, ethics, diversity and operations.
