The Honorary Life Membership (HLM) program was established in the Presbyterian Church to honor faithful service to the women’s organization and to the church. More than a thousand women (and a few men) receive this honor each year, many on Celebrate the Gifts of Women Sunday. With this recognition, your honoree will receive a certificate and either a 10K gold pin ($250) or a silver pin ($95).
Funds derived from Honorary Life Memberships support the PW Leadership Development Grant Program. Grants from this program enable individuals to engage in leadership development opportunities such as the Churchwide Gathering, Ecumenical Advocacy Days and the UN Commission on the Status of Women.

Download an Honorary Life Membership form. Individual Presbyterian Women, a Presbyterian Women’s group or other church group conferring this honor should send the form (at least six weeks prior to the presentation date), along with a check for the appropriate amount, to the treasurer of Presbyterian Women in the Presbytery. Make checks payable to “Treasurer of Presbyterian Women” and include “Honorary Life Membership” in the memo line.
If you need contact information for your PW in the Presbytery treasurer, contact Presbyterian Women.
Individuals not affiliated with Presbyterian Women may still confer this honor. Fill out the form and send it, along with a check for the appropriate amount, directly to:
Presbyterian Women Remittance Processing
PO Box 643652
Pittsburgh, PA 15264
Make checks payable to “Presbyterian Women” and note “Honorary Life Membership” and the honoree’s name in the memo line.
After the PWP treasurer sends the HLM form to Presbyterian Women Churchwide, an Honorary Life Membership pin and certificate will be mailed to the person indicated on the form for later presentation to the honoree.
