Through their generosity United Methodist Women members help empower and improve the lives of women, youth and children in the United States and around the world.
About 70 percent of Mission Giving funds from members go to programs and projects supporting women, children and youth. Around 20-30 percent stays with the local, district, and conference organizations of United Methodist Women for local mission. Only 9 percent covers administrative costs.
