Current Fundraising Campaign
Breathe life into our mission!
Membership dues and pledges don’t cover all the costs involved in running the organization, so from time to time, we ask for support from our CFT members and friends. Donations made from this page are tax deductible, as is any contribution to Christian Feminism Today.
Our current fundraising campaign supports our 50th Year Celebration!
Current Fundraising Campaign Details
The very beginnings of EWC-EWCI-EEWC-Christian Feminism Today can be traced to a 1973 meeting of over 50 evangelical leaders (only five or six were women!) during which “The Chicago Declaration of Evangelical Social Concern” was drafted, signed, and released. One of the women attending that meeting was Nancy Hardesty. A year later, the meeting was held again, but this time Nancy had volunteered to act as secretary of the planning committee, and she made sure that women were much better represented. During the 1974 meeting, the attendees broke into several caucuses, the “women’s caucus” being one of them. This was the beginning of the “Evangelical Women’s Caucus.” (Letha and Nancy’s book, All We’re Meant to Be, was published just a few months before the 1974 conference.)
In 1975, the first separate Evangelical Women’s Caucus conference was held over Thanksgiving weekend, at a YWCA camp near Washington, D.C.

To honor our organization’s 50-year history, we are undertaking a series of projects designed to celebrate our many years of advocacy, achievements, and life-changing relationships. The first phase of our work, funded by this campaign, will involve making sure never-before-released aspects of our history are available to scholars and the general public, as well as preserving other important archival resources, so our work is available for years to come.
We need your help to fund this project. Any amount is very helpful, but our goal is to raise $6,500 during this campaign.
