The Mormon Women Project is a qualified Section 501(c)(3) charitable organization. All donations made directly to the organization are tax-deductible to the extent provided by law.
Since it was launched in January of 2010, the MWP has touched the lives of thousands of LDS women, encouraging them to be more confident in themselves and in the Lord, and helping them find a place for themselves in our church culture. It’s also created a space for those who are not members of the Church to learn about our women in a honest, informative environment. You can help this tremendous work move forward by contributing to growing the Project.
All of our interviews are done in person, but they then need to be transcribed into the text form you see here on the site. Your donation allows us to pay for transcription services, a vital need since the MWP is otherwise entirely voluntarily run and the transcription time can be draining and discouraging for volunteers. Paying for transcription services allows our volunteers to focus on finding women to interview and editing their interviews so that they are true to the character and message of the woman.
In addition, in 2015, we are hoping to redesign the Mormon Women Project website. Our current site has served us well since our launch in January of 2010, but it needs a facelift and some backend cleanup, and we want to do it right. Your donation will help us do that.
Since its launch in January 2010, the Mormon Women Project accomplished the following:
• Produced over 200 interviews of inspiring women and regularly publishes one new interview per week
• Interviewed women from Korea, France, South Africa, Ghana, England, Ireland, the West Bank, Russia, Hungary, Romania, Rwanda, India, Venezuela as well as a dozen other countries.
• Published a book, Sisters Abroad: Interviews from the Mormon Women Project, through Patheos press.
• Produced four videos in which women answer questions such as, “What is womanhood to you?” and “When did you first know you had a testimony?”
• Hosted several evening Salons, such as this one, as fundraisers and opportunities for women to gather.
• Initiated conversations to contribute content to the Church History Archives
• Has been visited over a million times
• Has employed the help of over 30 volunteers, including interview producers, copy editors, photographers, videographers, web designers, graphic designers, and lawyers.
• Collected over 200 names of women nominated by friends and family through the site
Help us keep up this remarkable work!
