  • Praise God! God is Good! by Josephine Deere
    03/25/2006 Have groups who are critical of United Methodist Women been a factor on our giving? If so, the affect has been marginal, and it has transferred funds from the idea of undesignated giving to designated giving. The trend in churches and non-profits across the nation is that giving is decreasing and that persons have a desire to designate where their money goes. This is different than the historical understanding of undesignated gifts to mission – known to United Methodist Women and predecessor organizations for over a century. The historical understanding of “undesignated giving” is that gifts are given to mission and the gifts are dispersed to places with the greatest need. This makes us a unique organization, and we want to spread this message so that all women say, “That is an organization I want to join! Thanks be to God!”
