UWGT Women United

United Way recognizes that women are leading the way in making an impact on our community through active service and leadership, thought partnership, and generous giving. United Way’s signature affinity group, Women United, was created as a way to further engage, empower, and educate local women interested in strengthening our community through volunteering, networking, fundraising, and learning opportunities. This is a group of accomplished women dedicated to supporting the work of United Way of the Greater Triangle to improve the lives of the Triangle’s neediest residents.

2019 Focus

United Way tackles the many consequences of poverty from several angles, including health, hunger, housing, education, and career readiness.  In 2019, the women of Women United will focus on career readiness and will engage in the challenges women living in poverty face regarding workforce preparedness, job skills training, and workforce re-entry.  Our engagement in the workforce service area will include learning and education, active volunteering, and raising financial support to achieve solutions and successes.

Give a Planned Gift

United Way of the Great Triangle is committed to solutions that work toward the long-term health and well-being of the Greater Triangle community. In order to ensure that the needs in our community will be met well into the future, United Way has established a planned giving program.

Through this program, investors can give lasting gifts that will continue to help those in need for years to come.  Whether through a gift of stock, a bequest, life insurance beneficiary, or a charitable trust, planned gifts enable you to create a sustained impact in your community.

All donors who have made a planned gift, or who let us know that they will make a planned gift, will be included as members of the Tocqueville Legacy Society. Your planned gifts to United Way can be made in a variety of ways that will not only benefit United Way and the Greater Triangle community, but may also provide significant tax and income advantages.

For more information on how making a planned gift could benefit you and the Triangle community, please email Danette Chadwick or call 919-460-5013.
