United Methodist Women is a supportive, inclusive Christian membership organization where women like you grow spiritually, develop as leaders and serve and work to create a world in which all women, children and youth thrive. United Methodist Women is celebrated as the women’s ministry of The United Methodist Church.
Our members nurture one another in community and support U.S. and international projects and partners improving the lives of women, children and youth with their prayers, volunteer and advocacy efforts, and financial gifts.
United Methodist Women is a community of women committed to mission. As a member you can take advantage of many opportunities, including the following:
Our members elect a representative board of directors that sets policy for the organization and determines the places we can make the most impact. Staff and members work to carry out the organization’s goals and expectations. Members commit through their financial giving to support the transformation of lives around the world.
Any woman who commits herself to the PURPOSE of United Methodist Women and to engage in mission, study, personal growth and social action can join. You don’t have to be United Methodist or meet an age requirement to be a member.
It’s easy to become a member of United Methodist Women: you can talk to someone you know who is already a member, or if you don’t know a member, you can call our membership office at 212-870-3725. Join UMWOnline.org to meet members and ask why membership is right for them.

Our members give out of their love for the world and provide financial support for national mission institutions, higher education scholarships for international students, and 121 programs taking place in 110 countries.
