Women United is a donor network that recognizes and further engages women who invest $1,000 or more annually in United Way of the Piedmont’s (UWP) Community Impact Fund. Women United members actively shape our community’s future through giving, advocacy, and volunteerism. Led by a volunteer advisory board, Women United members participate in volunteer opportunities, social events, education sessions, and other United Way sponsored events. In 2019, this donor network selected to take on the specific challenge of Stabilizing Families, particularly those headed by single women living in poverty. Women United members will have the opportunity to dive deeper into the challenges these women face in addressing the cliff effect. The cliff effect, simply put, occurs when the value of public assistance outweighs the gain from an increase in wages. The cliff effect is an example of a complex issue that United Way of the Piedmont, through the generosity of its donors, can work to address.
