Thank you for joining the 2023 Power of the Purse (POP) Steering Committee!
Power of the Purse Luncheon and Silent Auction Presented by KeyBank Key4Women is the signature philanthropic event hosted by United Way Women United to raise awareness and resources in support of ALICE households. ALICE is a United Way-coined acronym that stands for Asset Limited, Income Constrained, and Employed.
Our mission is to ensure that all hard-working families have access to tools and programs that get them on a path towards financial stability. The ongoing economic impacts from the pandemic, inflation and other challenges have caused many in our community to walk a financial tightrope.
Hosting signature events, such as POP, is an impactful way to grow Women United membership and raise proceeds in support of programs that help families achieve financial security. We achieve our mission by connecting individuals with others that provide financial guidance and job training, along with other financial services and support systems to help them achieve their goals.

POP Committee members are encouraged to sell event tickets, tables, sponsorships and solicit silent auction donations. Please find materials below to support your outreach. Thank you in advance for your leadership and support! YOU are creating transformational change for local women and families.
“The greatness of a community is most accurately measured by the compassionate actions of its members.”
