Women United

We are a dynamic group of philanthropic-oriented women dedicated to giving, advocating, and volunteering for the most vulnerable in our community.

We are mothers, sisters, wives, daughters, aunts, and grandmothers with our own unique qualities, talents, experiences, and dreams.

When we unite together, the power of Women United becomes an overwhelming force creating a positive impact in the Yampa Valley.

Do you want to improve your financial literacy? Attend one of our classes to plan out your goals of budgeting, investing, and home ownership. Learn more about each class below. We recommend taking the classes in sequence.

All classes are currently full, but we will offer more classes in the fall.

Yampa River Core Trail

Women United along with Bud Werner Memorial Library and the City of Steamboat Springs is proud to sponsor the Steamboat StoryWalk. Located along a side path off the Yampa River Core Trail near the Stockbridge Transit Center, Steamboat StoryWalk is an innovative way for families to enjoy stories together in the outdoors as you meander between parts of a deconstructed story that is placed at intervals along a walking trail. 

We have an upcoming volunteer opportunities with Women United every Monday! Please join us in weekly walk-throughs of StoryWalk to check for cleanliness and vandalism.

Neighbors for Philanthropy: Women United Scholarship Fund

If you would like to join Women United and are unable to make the donation apply for our Neighbors for Philanthropy: Women United Scholarship Fund, founded by Suzy Sayle.

Early on, Suzy learned the importance of philanthropy. After college, she went on a motorcycle tour of Europe; it was during that time that she realized she wanted to do more and went on to become a Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner. She retired after 45 years in the field and moved to Steamboat Springs at the same time as Women United came into being.

Suzy says, “Beginning with promoting Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library, I realized I was with like-minded women who cared about our community. Together, we have put on some wonderful programs.”

Suzy loves creating a positive experience and advocating for our community in childhood education, youth success, financial stability, and mental health. She is thrilled to create this scholarship fund to empower a diverse group of women to continue making lasting change in our community.
