Kentucky WMU Endowments

Your donation to Kentucky WMU means more than just a simple gift to an organization, it is the means to promote an interest in the cause of missions and those involved in missions in order to fulfill the mission of God. When you give, you help support the work of Kentucky WMU as they mobilize for Great Commission obedience for generations to come. 

“God loves a cheerful giver. Because of the service by which you have proved yourselves, men will praise God for the obedience that accompanies your confession of the gospel of Christ, and for your generosity in sharing with them and with everyone else”

2 Cor. 9:7, 13 (NIV)

Anna Mary Byrdwell Mission Trip Fund

This fund provides scholarships for Kentucky Baptist women to go on mission trip and grow their passion for missions.

- We are currently collecting funds to reach our $3000 goal. After this goal is reached we can then begin to award scholarships. We are hoping to reach this goal by 2025. 

Anna Mary Byrdwell is known as the "keeper of all WMU knowledge." She has held many responsibilities and titles with Kentucky WMU from 1967 to 2004. From Sunbeams, Girls in Action, Acteens, to Baptist Young Women, we can not deny that she is "WMU" through and through. Along her journey in WMU work, she invested in women from all across Kentucky. She trained, inspired, encouraged, mentored, and challenged women to use their gifts to advance the gospel.

We named this Mission Trip Fund to honor Anna Mary's legacy and pray it can help women get involved in missions for year's to come.

Planned Giving

Engage in missions for generations to come! Kentucky WMU created the Heritage Fund (Endowment) to help provide a secure financial base for the mission and ministries of WMU.

The money placed in this endowment will never be spent; but the funds are invested so the interest provides an ongoing stream of income year after year, decade after decade. 

We partner with the Kentucky Baptist Foundation to steward your gifts. Learn more about including the Heritage Fund in your will...
