GIVE through Women in Philanthropy
United Way of Utah County Women in Philanthropy supports local programs benefitting women and children. Membership donations and other contributions help ensure the continuation of these needed resources.
Members of Women in Philanthropy donate $1000 or more annually. Membership donations go to the United Way of Utah County community fund. This fund is used for local programs that seek to improve income, education and health, which are the building blocks for a good quality of life. Panels consisting of local community members and members of the United Way of Utah County board examine and review funding requests from area programs and then make allocation decisions.
Funds generated through Women in Philanthropy events such as the "In Her Shoes" gala are allocatted to programs determined by the Women in Philanthropy board.
