Day of Giving

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

Why March 23? Because on that date in 1869 a group of eight intrepid women founded the Womans 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 permanent endowment that supports the work of the organization on behalf of women, children, and youth around the world. The goal of The Legacy Endowment Fund Campaign is $60 million. Thousands of generous donors have contributed to date, bringing the campaign close to half of this goal.

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.
