OUR PURPOSE

We understand the importance early childhood education plays in fostering economic and workforce development. With 39% of Pima County children unable to read at grade level by 3rd grade*, early investment is crucial.

 

*Data from the 2023 Arizona Department of Education and 2022 AzM2 Assessment Results.

OUR PRACTICE

Women United combines the financial power and collective talents of local philanthropic women leaders to address early childhood education in our community. Our signature event,  the Business Breakfast, raises more than $120,000 for early childhood education in Tucson and hosts over 500 attendees annually.

OUR IMPACT

My Summer Library

My Summer Library ignites the passion for reading by hosting Scholastic book fairs across multiple sites in Southern Arizona. Here, kindergarten and first-grade students are welcome to select 12 captivating books – free of charge.

In 2023, we were able to provide 30,504 books to a total of 2,542 kids through the collective efforts of 148 dedicated volunteers.
