Women United: Women Leadership on the Seacoast


“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 25 years, members have been coming together to help create the next generation of leaders.

Throughout the year, Women United offers events, including fun networking opportunities, inspiring educational events, and volunteer experiences.

The Seacoast Women United group has two signature events where members play an integral role in the success of these impactful community events:

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.

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 200+ women to connect, learn about their community, and make an impact, all while bidding on dozens of gorgeous new designer purses! This important event raises awareness and funds for United Way’s work in the Greater Seacoast region.
