Mission: To create a powerful initiative of women united to improve the lives of children through leadership, philanthropy, and advocacy

WHO are we in 2015?

We are a group brought together by United Way of South MS will make a difference in our communities. We are establishing a membership level tier ($100 annually or $8.30 monthly) that encourages entry supporters to increase our resources through philanthropic giving. United Way will also enhance our relationship with female Leadership Givers through a "Lifetime Contribution Level" to honor those that have seen the value of the UWSM work and chosen to be long-term supporters.


Objective 1: Develop/promote programming around Education focused on early years, continuing through 3rd grade, so that children are successful and on track for graduation.

Objective 2: Identify ways to positively impact the financial stability of families on the coast while connecting need with resources that can help.
