Committee on Nominations
United Methodist Women is the largest denominational faith organization for women with approximately 800,000 members whose mission is fostering spiritual growth, developing leaders and advocating for justice.
United Methodist Women are again offering grants to women in ministry, both laity and clergy, as well as local UMW units. These grants are possible through a generous gift from the Barbara Csomay estate. Barbara lived out our purpose and had a heart for education of women. In 2020 we were able to give over $42,000 in grants. Many of those grants were in response to urgent needs due to the Covid Pandemic. In 2021 we will give preference to new projects/programs that reflect our purpose to serve women, children and youth. However existing and/or on-going projects may also be considered.
Applications need to be submitted by May 15th and grants will be announced in June. 2020 was an unusual year and grants were awarded as received. In 2021, grants will not be awarded until June.
If you would like to give a gift to this work, please send your check to our UMW Conference treasurer. Her name and address are on the application forms.
We are excited to be offering these grants and honoring Barbara Csomay.
