How is 4word funded?

Your contributions are connecting women in authentic community in over 20 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

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 resources (blogs & podcasts), face-to-face or virtual events and Mentor Program with a staff of just 9 full-time employees and a team of contractors with specialized skills.
