Each local unit of UMW accepts financial responsibility with other local units for undergirding the global ministries of the church through an annual Pledge to Mission, Women’s Division.
On the national level, The Women’s division of the General Board of Global Ministries has more than one million members and a multi-million dollar budget. Visit their website.
