Scholarshipping Our Sisters

Prior to 2004 all scholarships were funded by profits from the Women's Ministries' daily devotional books for women. The first devotional book was printed in 1993 and was titled Among Friends. Since then 23 more books have been published.

In 2004 we became aware of our need to raise even more funds for this program as we were turning down almost 50% of all applicants. A program was developed to raise funds that would allow more women to receive help. This new program is called "Scholarshipping Our Sisters" (SOS) and is managed by the GC Women's Ministries department.

Funds are solicited from businesses, retirees, women's organizations, and other interested groups and individuals. Donations may be named or unnamed. Donors are free to specify if their donation is for a particular field of study or if it can be used generally. And donors can give a donation in memory of, in honor of, or just as a gift.

Each quarter we print a SOS newsletter updating you on what your donations are doing and giving you true stories of some of our recipients.
