What is “POWER of the PURSE”?

An incredible group of women committed to significantly improving the quality of life in the Big Bend through philanthropic giving, advocacy and volunteerism.

  • It’s about more than just raising funds to meet and prevent human need. It’s about networking with other women through a mutual commitment to and relationship with United Way.

  • Local Agencies submit grant proposals for funding

  • $.83 of every dollar goes to support local programs
