About UMW

United Methodist Women is the largest denominational faith organization for women with approximately 800,000 members whose mission is fostering spiritual growth, developing leaders and advocating for justice.

Members raise up to $20 million each year for programs and projects related to women, children and youth in the United States and in more than 100 countries around the world. United Methodist Women and The United Methodist Church’s principles and values include promoting:

The empowerment of women, children and youth, inclusion and equity, anti-racism and multiculturalism, fair labor practices, and economic and environmental stewardship and sustainability.


United Methodist Women is a community of women whose purpose is to know God and to experience freedom as whole persons through Jesus Christ; develop a creative, supportive fellowship; and expand concepts of mission through participation in the global ministries of the church

Mission Initiatives

The entire program and organization of United Methodist Women focuses on mission. Our mission initiatives include providing opportunities to grow spiritually, equipping women and girls to be leaders, providing transformative educational experiences, organizing for growth and flexibility, and working for justice through service and advocacy.

True to our Wesleyan heritage, mission cannot be solely charity but involves empowerment and advocacy
for social change. By combining the two, we can be witnesses to the love and life of Jesus Christ.
