Since 2012 Widow Wednesday has been funded by our founders and a few friends, family and a handful of wonderful donors who believe in our vision. This #GivingTuesday we are giving YOU an opportunity to partner with us in funding the cost of running this organization. Use the GIVE NOW button to set up a onetime or monthly gift on our secure giving page.
Widow Wednesday has annual events that will continue and new events and outreaches we’re excited to see come to life. This year we have been a part of so many practical projects to bless widows in our community partnering with companies like Bankers Life and Home Depot just to name a few helping with homes and more. We are looking for partners who want to give one time or monthly to see our vision reached. Thanks in advance for being part of #GivingTuesday and partnering with Widow Wednesday!
