How is 4word funded?
Thank you for supporting 4word and partnering with us to serve professional women across the world.
Your contributions are connecting women in authentic community in over 16 cities, enabling women to find female, Christian mentors for the first time in their lives, and providing them with resources and support to successfully navigate the challenges of leading at work, at home, and in the community. Your funds also go towards advocacy efforts aimed at helping churches realize that they have a wealth of God-given talent and treasure in their congregations.
When you support a woman who is leading and influencing, you are also supporting her husband, her children, her employers, and her community.
“I wanted to thank you for hosting last weeks’ luncheon. I attended with one of my best friends and we both agreed that, while we’re grateful to have a close group of friends who are believers, it’s so refreshing to have another way to connect with Christian women — specifically those who are building careers.” –Anne
“I have been meeting with women to spread 4word, and I have enjoyed every minute of it. I am feeling super encouraged by their enthusiasm, wisdom, and willingness. I am humbled by the opportunity and excited to see where God takes it here. So thanks for believing in this cause and spreading it across the country to D.C.!” –Shelby
4word© (4wordwomen.org) is recognized by the IRS as tax-exempt private operating foundation under section 501(c)(3).
Founder Diane Paddison has directed any profits from author fees and sales of Work, Love, Pray to 4word. Diane and her husband Chris have also made personal donations to 4word to assist with operating expenses. Other individual donors include 4word’s volunteer Board of Directors and Advisory Board, 4word staff members, 4word Local Group leaders, and participants in cities across the U.S. Private corporations, foundations, and individuals who support the mission of 4word have generously given since the organization was launched in 2011.
4word desires to establish sustainable funding through partnerships with foundations, companies, and individual donors. Additionally, 4word partners with companies, affiliates, and programs who equip women to unleash their time, talents, and treasure for the benefit of their families, churches, employers, and community.
Where do donations go?
4word fosters a culture of transparency as an organization. Our board of directors, leaders, and staff share a commitment to provide high value to professional Christian women by keeping operating expenses lean.
While 4word welcomes volunteers who give of their time and talent, we believe the “laborer is worth his (or her) wages” (Luke 5:18b, NIV). 4word produces all our digital content, face-to-face events and programs with a staff of just two employees and a team of part-time digital and social media writers and creatives. All 4word internships have been paid positions.
