Women’s Leadership


“Women United has given me the opportunity to meet and engage with incredible women while creating positive change in the community.”

Founded and led by women, Women United honors the power and influence of women in philanthropy. For 20 years, members have been coming together to help create the next generation of leaders.

Throughout the year, the Women United offers more than 20 events, including fun networking opportunities, inspiring educational events, and hands-on volunteer experiences.

Women United of the Greater Seacoast’s efforts are focused on the New Hampshire Seacoast area. For more information about joining Women United, contact Lily Lynch at llynch@supportunitedway.org.


Purses for a Purpose

Style meets substance at the Greater Seacoast’s premier philanthropic event for women. United Way’s Purses for a Purpose event brings together almost 200 women to connect, learn about their community, and make an impact, all while bidding on dozens of new designer purses! This important event raises awareness and funds for United Way’s work in the Greater Seacoast region.

SAVE THE DATE for Purses for a Purpose on November 8, 2017 in Portsmouth!


The Community Baby Shower

In the spirit of a traditional baby shower, United Way’s Community Baby Shower, put on by Women United, connects low-income pregnant women and new/soon-to-be parents with maternal and early childhood resources as well as food and friendship.
