To celebrate the 10th anniversary of Presbyterian Women and to make a commitment to all women in the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), Presbyterian Women established an endowment fund called the Widening the Circle Fund.
Through this fund, critical and innovative ministries that are above and beyond the current funding pattern of the church will be made available to wider circles of women. Revenue generated from the fund will enable the community of women in the PC(USA) to serve and witness to the promise of God for a just and peaceful world.
The Widening the Circle Fund will be used primarily in the following areas:
• Innovative programs to equip and enable an increasing number of younger women for leadership roles in the church at every level
• Networking programs to build a community of sisterhood locally and globally, addressing common concerns and advocating for issues unique to women
• Establishing means for the collection of theological insights from a diverse and inclusive community of women
Individuals may also give by phone or online.
Presbyterian Women in the Congregation groups should forward Widening the Circle gifts to the PW in the Presbytery treasurer according to the quarterly deadlines:
• March 10
