We have some exciting news to share, we are now Women United
As a member of Women United you are joining an international network of 70,000 women leaders and philanthropists in over 165 communities across six countries. Members of Ottawa’s local chapter collaborate to make transformational change by connecting with other like-minded women.
Since 2014, local women invested nearly $170,000 in spark Community Action Grants. Members of spark generously invested in more than 60 grassroots, resident-led initiatives (Link to spark news or specific articles about spark – https://www.unitedwayottawa.ca/spark-invests-in-7-new-community-projects) in Ottawa’s most vulnerable neighbourhoods. These initiatives focus on reducing isolation, increasing community cohesion and safety, building skills and empowering women as change makers in their own neighbourhoods. This important work laid the foundation for the success of Women United.
