PW Gives Day commemorates the founding of Presbyterian Women and the ongoing journey of PW—the community that is PW and each individual woman who is PW! On this day (or any day between now and July 31), share your PW story, invite someone to participate in PW, and/or give in thanks for all that Presbyterian Women makes possible.
Forgiven and freed by God in Jesus Christ, and empowered by the Holy Spirit, we commit ourselves

- to support the mission of the church worldwide,
- to work for justice and peace, and
- to build an inclusive, caring community of women that strengthens the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) and witnesses to the promise of God’s kingdom.
