It was wonderful to see so many powerful and engaged women in one space, learning together. When we gather as a whole, we are able to make such a huge impact on our community.
To keep the momentum going, here are some easily accessible ways that you can support United Way of the Bluegrass and the wonderful partners who were in the room with us.
  • By joining Women United, you are joining a group of committed women who make an impact on the everyday lives of our most vulnerable community members. Joining Women United is easy- when you make a financial gift of $500 or more to UWBG, you are automatically enrolled. An individual gift of $1,000 or more provides an opportunity for a seat on the council. You’ll be invited to join us at exclusive events, volunteer opportunities and celebrations throughout the year. Even better, your gift to UWBG will be used to serve our internal initiatives and community partners. Give today or reach out to Angela Crow for more details.  
  • Come back to this website frequently and follow UWBG on social media to learn more about our work in the community and how you can get involved. We’re always up to something fun!

  • Support students who are displaced or in foster care by volunteering with local nonprofit partners who support our students. As our panelists mentioned, they are always in need of tutors, mentors and advocates for our kids. Learn more by visiting the websites for the Foster Care Council,  Arbor Youth Services and Voices of the Commonwealth.
In the words relayed by our keynote speaker, Stephanie Spires, “Every kid is ONE caring adult away from being a success story.” Please join United Way of the Bluegrass, Women United and all the impactful nonprofits across Central Kentucky by choosing to LIVE UNITED, today and every day.
