Women United Flagler


Our mission is to create positive, measurable, long-term change in the lives of women and children by focusing on root causes and pooling resources to increase our impact.


The funds raised through Women United Flagler help women and children above and beyond the normal activities of the United Way with 80% of its funds being allocated to Flagler County programs and 20% going to the United Way Community Funds, which are then allocated out to the United Way's partner agencies.

Power of the Purse

Power of the Purse

With generous support from local businesses, donors and volunteers, proceeds from Flagler Power of the Purse support local nonprofits serving women and children.

Chicks with Cans

Chicks with Cans

Women United Flagler (WUF) launched Chicks with Cans in 2010 in response to the growing hunger rate in Flagler County. Because local food pantries have purchasing power, WUF switched to collecting cash donations in 2020. Since the group began, Chicks with Cans has collected over $78,000 in cash donations to help the community.

Who We Fund

Who We Fund

Women United Flagler is dedicated to raising funds, both monetary and in-kind, that go back into the Flagler Community to help support causes that matter most to women and children.
All proceeds from Women United Flagler's fundraising events are distributed back into the Flagler community in the form of grants that support women and children in need. Grants are accepted in September and granted in October. One grant may be awarded per project within a 12 month period.
