Women United Brighter Future Fund Grant Applications

Women United Brighter Future Fund

Women United is committed to supporting United Way of Racine County's focus of building an educated workforce through the creation of the Brighter Future Fund.  With a focus on women and children, Women United will provide funding opportunities to programs aiding in the development of the workforce of today and tomorrow.  Annual grants will be available for programs that support school readiness, family financial stability and on-time graduation. 

Women United raises funds outside of the United Way of Racine County's annual campaign.  We are able to offer funding due to the generous support of donors throughout our community that want to support women and children.
