Alone we can do so little, together we can do so much. – Helen Keller
We are excited to have exceeded $100,000. in grants. They were presented to outstanding organizations that impact many people, in many ways, in many places! This has been accomplished by collectively distributing our member contributions of $365. per year (representing $1. per day). Perfectly illustrating Helens sentiment and the purpose of Women4Given. Our Celebration is shared with all of the recipients. And, grants are always accepted with gratitude and grace.

Our purpose includes the four (4) key principles of our Christian faith: 1] We are all sinners, 2] We are saved by the grace of God found in the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ alone, 3] We love God with all our heart, mind, soul and strength and 4] We love our neighbor.
