What can we say but: Wow!
Your giving as part of the international day called #GivingTuesday was truly remarkable! We asked to raise money to specifically go towards our International Women’s Fund which disperses $10,000 each year to women around the world training for church leadership.
What we love most is that your gifts directly and powerfully affirm women and their goals of theological study. Women like Fabiola who is seeking education in Colombia so she can continue to effectively serve her community she loves so much. Or Priyanka who is focused her studies to equip her for teaching Mennonite women at the collegiate level in India.
Thank you for your gifts! We raised $2,936!
Women receiving these scholarship funds are able to pay for things like tuition fees, purchase books and buy materials to start, continue or complete their studies. You have made a way for women to succeed and for that the only words are: thank you.
Worldwide, the #GivingTuesday movement raised $116 million dollars in donations to the organizations who participated and we were part of that–YOU were part of that–thank you for your generosity.
