Women’s Leadership Council

United Way of Southern Nevada’s Women’s Leadership Council (WLC) is part of a national network of dedicated women philanthropists who have collectively raised over $1B in supporting United Way’s mission to improve lives and build stronger communities. In southern Nevada, the WLC has raised almost $1.9M in just eight years, investing their dollars in crucial projects which are changing lives. From teaching children through innovative early learning techniques, improving math and reading scores for K-7th students, empowering at-risk students to graduate high school, providing scholarships for young women, helping families become financially self-sufficient and providing medical services for abused and homeless women and children, these dynamic and generous women are truly change agents for the community. 

We hope that you can join the WLC and over 500 women leaders at the Annual WLC Luncheon Fashion. Click here to learn more and RSVP.

This incredible group of women collected over 12,273 professional items during the WLC 8th Annual “Women’s Fall Suit Drive” on Friday, November 6 for women in need. For a list of 2015-16 WLC funded projects, click here.
