THANK YOU to everyone who supported 4word during Giving Day!

Screen Shot 2015-09-17 at 3.36.46 PM

We are overwhelmed by the support we received from the 4word community during yesterday’s national Giving Day event! Whether you offered your financial support, prayed for us, or helped spread the word about the event, we cannot thank you enough.

Thanks to the generosity of our supporters, we surpassed the Giving Day goal we’d set for ourselves! All donations received will directly support greatly needed local and national programs, digital properties, content, and resource materials to advance women as they are connected, led, and supported to fulfill their God given potential.

(If you missed the opportunity to give yesterday, you can still give to 4word by visiting our Donate Today page!)
