Reflecting on 2019

Because of your partnership, lives have been changed in 2019! Here are a few ways your gifts have made a difference:

Scholarships

“Because of the WMU scholarship, I have been able to attend a school where I have found one of the strongest communities. I have not only been able to excel in my craft but have been challenged more than ever before in how I love others and pursue God. Receiving this award has been a huge answer to prayers and a great blessing to my family and me.” —Annie Wolfzorn

  • 94 total scholarships granted in 2019 • $93,287
  • 65 of those were MK scholarships • $69,249

HEART Fund Grants

“Often in the overwhelming aftermath of a tragedy, people’s hearts are more receptive to accepting the hope found in Christ. We pray our efforts will reap Kingdom rewards.” —Sandy Wisdom-Martin

  • Over $500,000 granted since 2001 $8,650 granted in 2019

Hayes Endowment

“We are honored to partner with the WMU Foundation as we assist trafficking survivors, create awareness, provide trainings, and advocate for stricter laws. It takes all of us working together to change lives and change our world.” —Kay Bennett, executive director of the Baptist Friendship House

  • $5,902 granted in 2019

Touch Tomorrow Today

Your state’s WMU TTT endowment is a great way to support missions where you live. Since the use of the funds is not restricted, support of your state endowment is critical to advance its ministry and mission.

  • $102,305 distributed to state WMUs and Vision Fund in 2019

Second Century Fund

Created by WMU to celebrate its 100-year anniversary in 1988, the Second Century Fund financially supports WMU women’s leadership development in the United States and internationally.
