An International Movement 

United Way of Pickens County Women United is part of a robust and diverse network of more than 70,000 women in 165 communities across six countries, all dedicated to improving lives and creating stronger communities. These women make up the single most successful organization of its kind, having raised more than $1billion since its inception in 2002 and affecting worldwide change in real ways. The contributions of these women goes well beyond financial donations; they get involved, shake things up and create positive change.
