National WMU is known for making disciples of Jesus who live on mission. Their operating budget includes the cost of paying their staff and writers, producing curriculum, and mailing thousands of magazines to educate children, teenagers, and adults about being part of God’s mission. It also provides for the compassion ministries of WMU—Christian Women’s/Men’s Job Corps and WorldCrafts—and helps develop women’s leadership courses. WMU’s missions curriculum, courses, and ministries educate, inspire, encourage, and motivate people in churches all around the world to join God in His mission.
The purchase of national WMU’s curriculum and products helps to offset the cost of their overall budget needs, but only a portion of their operating cost is covered by the purchase price of the magazines or products.
Where does the rest of national WMU’s operating costs come from?
It does not come from the Cooperative Program, and that is by design. WMU has always had a desire to promote the missions offerings of the North American Mission Board (NAMB) and International Mission Board (IMB) and to support missionaries through prayer, housing, missionary kid retreats and scholarships, and much more.
Part of the funding for WMU’s operating costs come from donors like you who are committed to calling other Christians to be on mission with God. When you give to the Vision Fund, you support the overall ministry of WMU. That includes magazines, events, and programs as well as specific ministries and organizations like Girls in Action, Royal Ambassadors, and Acteens.
What can be accomplished through your gift means everything! Your gift to the Vision Fund will make a profound influence on WMU’s ability to help others fulfill God’s mission.
National WMU’s financial situation continues to be extremely challenging, and your continued support of WMU through the Vision Fund is critical. Would you, your church, or WMU group consider a monthly gift to the Vision Fund to help sustain this mission?

We are grateful for your support of WMU through the years and look forward to how the Lord will continue to use WMU to make disciples of Jesus who live on mission.
