Honoring or Memorializing a Woman through a Gift to GWP

Sometimes people choose to memorialize or honor women during our special Mother’s Day Project, but we encourage people to do this any time of the year.

Empowerment is a journey we share together. Rather than buying more material gifts for your loved one (or the family members of loved ones who have passed), express your gratitude with a gift that helps other women around the world. Your donation allows us to fund projects focused on women’s health, education, and employment. In return, your chosen recipient will receive a lovely, hand-written card indicating that a gift has been made in her honor (or their loved one’s memory), with a brief description of GWP. To participate, send a donation to:

Global Women’s Project
℅ Church of the Brethren
1451 Dundee Ave
Elgin IL 60120

To memorialize someone:

Please write the check to GWP and mail it to the Elgin address. Please include a note saying who you’re memorializing. We will list the names of all people memorialized throughout the year on our website, https://globalwomensproject.wordpress.com, and in our annual newsletter. (We do not list the names of the donors or the amounts of the donations – just the names of the women – or men – who are honored through a memorial gift.)

To honor someone special in your life:

Please write the check to GWP and mail it to the Elgin address. Please include a note saying who you’re honoring. If you want a note sent to the honoree on behalf of GWP acknowledging your donation, we ask that you also send an email to cobgwp@gmail.com, with the name and address of the honoree.

Upon request, we will gladly send GWP materials to you for distribution to potential donors.

If you want to be certain we see your comment in a timely manner, also send us an email at cobgwp@gmail.com to let us know you are honoring/memorializing someone.

  1. We have chosen GWP as one of the recipients for memorial gifts honoring my mother, Barbara Roller Smith. Are there printed GWP materials we could have available at the 2 memorial services we are having – January 14 in North Manchester and January 15 in Lansing, MI? We might have someone who would download some of the cards for us.

    1. What a lovely gift, Anita! I’m sure we can work this out. We’ll be in touch. Anna Lisa, for GWP
