The Thank Offering of  Presbyterian Women

Presbyterian women have been making grants to creative ministries through the Thank Offering since 1888 when Eliza Clokey of Springfield, Ohio, urged each woman to give one dollar over and above her usual contribution to the Women’s General Ministry Society of the United Presbyterian Church in North America as a “thank offering to her Lord.”  Women gave sacrificially and were credited with saving the worldwide missionary movement of the church at the time. Since then, Presbyterian women have granted support to thousands of ministries worldwide, and raised millions of dollars for mission. 

In February 2016, the Creative Ministries Offering Committee of Presbyterian Women met to review 71 applications submitted for grants from the 2015 Thank Offering. Twenty-two of the projects were chosen for grants totaling $510,088. Fourteen of the projects are ministries that serve people in need in the United States. Eight of the projects are international. More than 40% of the funded projects are health ministries. The goal for this offering is $900,000.

Westminster Interfaith Caring Place (WICP)–Elders Learning and Nurture Project
This project is one of those chosen to receive grants from the Thank Offering of Presbyterian Women.

The Elders Learning and Nurture project of WICP provides adult day care for frail and cognitively impaired elderly.
Your gift to the Thank Offering will allow the staff of WICP to be trained and certified in Montessori-Based Dementia Programming, and tailor WICP’s creative programs for efficient portability to community venues.

The 2016 Thank Offering booklet was mailed to each PC(USA) congregation. Look for it in the mail today! Order more by calling Presbyterian Distribution Service (PDS) at 800/524-2612.

Thank Offering donations should be forwarded to the Presbytery PW Treasurer: Mary Lou Williams, 14601 NW 26th Avenue, Vancouver, WA 98685

Think you know Presbyterian Women?

A new series of light-hearted and happily serious posters help show the range of what it means to be Presbyterian Women. Feel free to share (on bulletin boards or refrigerator doors, in newsletters or in circle meetings!). This (gentle) educational campaign will challenge everyone to rethink what it means to be a part of Presbyterian Women. Posters are available for download on the documents tab.
