Celebrate Presbyterian Women’s 25th anniversary with a $25 gift
In July 1988, Presbyterian Women was created, bringing together the best of the women’s organizations from the two denominations that merged to become the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.). So for 25 years now, our beloved organization has been witnessing to the promise of God’s kingdom and transforming lives around the world. And of course, this young group is carrying on the more-than-200-year tradition of Presbyterian women meeting, praying and acting together in shared love of God!
July 2014 marks the end of our year-long celebration of Presbyterian Women’s first 25 years. Learn more about the logos, online celebrations and resources available to commemorate 25 years of Presbyterian Women!
And don’t forget to make your gift to the $25 for 25 campaign (which includes matching gifts in many synods!). Donate now or send a check by July 31, with “$25 for 25” written in the memo line, to Presbyterian Women Remittance Processing, PO Box 643652, Pittsburgh PA 15264-3652.

Start a conversation about child and maternal nutrition
The first 1,000 days of a child’s life are a critical window for creating a healthier and more prosperous future.
