Women United Welcome Letter


Women United was formed to inspire, educate, and engage women to become actively involved in leadership, philanthropy, volunteerism, and advocacy in support of their local United Way.  Women United is a group of community-minded women who provide the support it takes to build successful lives through United Way’s building blocks of Health, Education, Income, and Basic Needs.

Even though member breakfasts are covered with your membership, we do ask that you invite friends to join you as all proceeds from the breakfast will go to Northwoods Battered Women’s Shelter’s capital campaign.  The cost is $20 for a non-member to attend.  Also, if you know of someone that would be interested in joining our cause as a Women United member, please share this information with them.

Due to capacity, we ask guests to RSVP ahead of time. Tickets are available for purchase on Event Brite.
A reminder that Women United Member's breakfasts are covered with your dues.
We look forward to using your strengths, resources, and care for our community to help Northwoods Battered Women’s Shelter build capacity and serve more families in the Bemidji community. Together we can do more than any one of us can do alone!
