The mission of Women United is to invest in the betterment of Lancaster County women. Member contributions are invested in programs and initiatives through an annual grant process. Each year the grant focuses on a different area of the Women United Vision: Achieve impactful change in the health, education, and financial stability of Lancaster County women.



The objective of the 2022-2023 grant cycle is to better the lives of Lancaster County women by promoting women's financial stability. We are delighted to be funding these organizations:
