What is Power of the Purse?

Power of the Purse provides a collaborative forum for women of all ages who want to significantly improve the quality of life in the Midland community through leadership giving, advocacy and volunteering. It’s about joining with like-minded women to be a strong voice and make a difference in meeting needs in the community. This year’s event is benefiting United Way of Midland’s Annual Campaign. Did you know that 98.5% of all funds raised by the United Way of Midland go directly to supporting YOUR community? Just last year, United Way of Midland served 30 community partners by funding 55 programs in health, education and self-sufficiency. Your support demonstrates the power of your purse: the power to make a real difference in your community.
