International Women’s Day Offering
This International Women’s Day (March 8), your gifts to the ELCA’s International Women Leaders (IWL) initiative will go twice as far. Thanks to the generosity of supporters of IWL, gifts will be matched dollar for dollar up to $100,000. You can help expand opportunities for women around the world as we strive for a church — and society — built on true gender equity.
Example for bulletin: On March 8, our congregation will celebrate International Women’s Day and take an offering for the ELCA’s International Women Leaders (IWL) initiative. Give a gift and invest in the future of women leaders. Learn more at ELCA.org/IWL.
