As we approach the holidays and the final weeks of Global Women‘s Project‘s fiscal year, I invite you to consider making an end-of-year tax deductible donation to help continue the work of GWP into 2015. With our relatively small budget, comprised solely of donations, we have been able to transform women‘s lives throughout the world. With your support, we have been able to give more grant money to our Partner Projects in Nepal, South Sudan, Rwanda, Uganda and the U.S. than we have in the past several years. In addition, we were able to give a timely grant to the Centre for Caring, Empowerment and Peace Initiatives in Nigeria due to the enormous need there. We have also engaged in efforts to educate as many people as we could about issues related to wealth and privilege and the impact of our choices on the lives of others.
I am excited about the work of GWP! In just a few weeks, you will have an opportunity to get a more extensive look into our activities through reading our newsletter, Globalinks. As we prepare for the printing and mailing of this “annual report,” I am reminded of the extent of outreach that can be done in a year with approximately $20,000, a dedicated Steering Committee, faithful and visionary women around the world, and willing volunteers who have helped us with everything from licking envelopes to transporting Lenten Calendars around the country. My heartfelt gratitude to all of you who have given to GWP, and to those of you who will yet give.
If you would like to make a contribution to GWP on behalf of yourself, in honor of a loved one, or as an alternative holiday gift, please send a check to:
