Widening the Circle

A Fund On Behalf Of Women

Widening the Circle Logo

A vision of justice and peace in the world will be lifted up, spoken and enacted by women of the PC(USA). With the continuing support of this fund, the circle of women participating in all levels of the church will widen.

To celebrate the tenth anniversary of Presbyterian Women and to make a commitment to all women in the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), Presbyterian Women established an endowment fund On Behalf of Women called Widening the Circle Fund.

With foresight and vision toward strengthening the future ministry of Presbyterian Women and the Women’s Ministries Area PC(USA), the Widening the Circle Fund was designed for the purpose of ensuring and enhancing financial resources for emerging programs that are vital to the community of faith.

Critical and innovative ministries that are above and beyond the current funding pattern of the church will be made available to wider circles of women.

Revenue generated from the fund will enable the community of women in the PC(USA) to serve and witness to the promise of God for a just world at peace.

The Widening the Circle Fund will be used primarily in the following areas:

  • Innovative programs to equip and enable an increasing number of younger women — at home, college and workplace — to be in leadership roles in the church at every level.
  • Networking programs to build a community of sisterhood locally and globally, addressing common concerns and advocating for issues that are unique to women.
  • Establishing means for the collection of theological insights from a diverse and inclusive community of women.

Gifts may be made by sending a check (noting "Widening the Circle Fund, Account #1020058979" in the memo line) to:

Presbyterian Foundation
200 East 12th Street
Jeffersonville, IN 47130

Please indicate if the donation is being made by an individual, congregation, presbytery, synod or other entity (please specify) and indicate your name and address.

Acknowledgement of your donation will be made by the Presbyterian Foundation.

For information on planned gifts, wills and bequests, please contact the PC(USA) Foundation at above address or phone (800) 858-6127.
