Women United:
Changing Conditions and Improving Lives

Women United

With more than 1,000 members contributing over $3 million, Women United members help people learn more, earn more and lead safe and healthy lives through their support of United Way.

Women United is United Way of Central Indiana's fastest-growing donor group. With gifts of $2,500 or more, members express their personal strength through giving, advocating and volunteering. Women United members have a tremendous capacity for positive change. The IRS reports that 43 percent of the country’s top wealth holders are women. It’s estimated that there are 10.1 million businesses in the U.S that are privately held and 50 percent or more are women-owned.

Membership Benefits:

  • Qualified members may be eligible for generous match opportunities through Lilly Endowment Inc. or the Angela and Doug Braly Match.
  • Attend members-only luncheons, special events and educational, volunteer and social networking opportunities throughout the year.



"There is something incredibly powerful about a team of like-minded women coming together to make a difference in our community!  Women United is doing just that and my goal is to get literacy kits in the homes of all children attending early childhood education centers that receive On My Way to Pre-K scholarships.  I want more women to join us as we make an impact on the lives of children in Central Indiana!

- Kirsten Casteel, United Way Coordinator, Eli Lilly and Company and Women United Chair
