United Way Women's Leadership Council

When women leaders unite, their voices, vision, and leadership can have a phenomenal impact. United Way Women’s Leadership Council brings together philanthropic women who are United Way WLC videodedicated to improving the lives of women and children.

Our northern New Jersey Council is proudly part of this global network of nearly 70,000 women from 163 United Ways dedicated to creating stronger communities. Collectively, the Council has raised more than $1 billion to address critical needs. We do this by inspiring and empowering women through philanthropy, advocacy, and volunteerism.

United For ALICE®

Our northern New Jersey Council channels donations and efforts to help ALICE (Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed) and poverty-level women and their families become more financially self sufficient.

ALICE represents the thousands of residents working in jobs essential to our community’s success. And while they are earning above the poverty level, they struggle to cover basic needs such as child care, food, housing, health care, and transportation. These are our neighbors – our bank tellers, home health aides, preschool teachers, and more.

We raise funds to support various scholarship opportunities that help ALICE families access quality child care for their children, child care professionals attain higher-level training that enhances job skills, and students from ALICE families pursue continuing education programs and complete their college degrees.

Our impact is great. Since 2011, we have raised more than $450,000 locally to help ALICE.

How We Help

Annual Fundraising Events
The Council holds two annual fundraisers to support ALICE – United Way Honey Open Golf Outing in the fall and our regional breakfast in the spring. Visit our calendar to search for upcoming events.

ALICE Scholarship Fund
We partner with local colleges to provide financial resources for students from ALICE families who are enrolling in continuing education programs. Currently, the Council supports scholarships at Centenary College, Raritan Valley Community College, Sussex County Community College, and Warren County Community College. Thanks to a generous match program from these institutions, the impact of our fundraising efforts is doubled. For questions or eligibility information, email Michele Dreiblatt.
