The Legacy Fund Endowment Campaign
United Methodist Women continues to build upon the foundation set forth by our founders almost 150 years ago. Yet the difficulties encountered by women, children and youth around the world continue to sustain separation from life affirming compassionate care and support that heals, restores and empowers. Imagine what is achievable, what is possible, if United Methodist Women had the resources to deepen and expand its mission to transform lives and ignite change in places near and far.
In 2014, the Board of Directors launched the Legacy Fund Endowment Campaign, setting a goal to raise $60 million. The Legacy Fund Endowment Campaign is both historic and unprecedented. The campaign’s theme, Together, We Are Building Our Legacy, celebrates the legacy of the courageous women who founded this mission movement, as well as the legacy that today’s members will leave for future generations of United Methodist women. In fact, our dream is that The Legacy Fund will create a basis of support for United Methodist Women’s staff and administration well into the next hundred years so that our mission of faith, hope, and love in action will enrich the lives of generations to come.
As of September 2018, Minnesota has contributed over $78,000 since 2014; nationally, more than $20 million has been given.
