Day of Giving

On March 23, United Women in Faith celebrates a “Day of Giving” to raise funds for The Legacy Endowment Fund.

Lunch time at Augustinho Indigenous Public School, Bororó Village, Mato Grosso do Sul, Brazil

Why March 23? Because on that date in 1869 a group of eight intrepid women founded the Woman’s Foreign Missionary Society, an organization that was the forerunner of United Women in Faith. To fulfill their vision of creating educational opportunities and providing health care to women in India, these founding women asked others to contribute “their prayers and two pennies.” In this way a movement of faith and generosity in action was born.

The Legacy Endowment Fund of United Women in Faith is a permanently invested endowment that supports the work of improving the lives of women, children and youth at home and abroad.

The annual Day of Giving on March 23 is the single largest fundraising activity for the Legacy Fund of the year. United Women in Faith members and supporters across the country gather locally and virtually to contribute to and raise funds for the endowment.
