Eleanor by Women United


As an integral part of United Way of San Joaquin County, Eleanor by Women United (EWU) is a network committed to creating a powerful, female-driven philanthropic force to address the most critical issues in San Joaquin County. We are a diverse, vibrant community bound together by a powerful sense of belonging — to each other, to our missions, and to our community. Women United is an affinity group, a part of a growing, global network of women leaders — 70,000 strong across more than 165 communities in six countries.

Eleanor by Women United

Our vision is to create a thriving community for all. In San Joaquin County, Eleanor by Women United’s purpose is to advance the diversity of both young and established women. EWU is not a women’s exclusive affinity group but understands and welcomes the value of engaging men in all areas of our work. 

The top three critical issues our county faces are mental health, economic security, and healthy living. By working hand-in-hand with partner organizations, local leaders and community stakeholders, we are able to connect individuals and families with resources to positively bridge gaps that impact our hometowns while also being part of the bigger picture and broader cause. 

Each year EWU selects a focus project to directly support a cause within our community. This year we have elected to sponsor mental health and wellness programs in local K-8 classrooms. A portion of the funds we raise via sponsors and membership dues will directly impact this priority
