About National WMU
Woman’s Missionary Union (WMU) began 132 years ago in the hearts of visionary leaders to pray and systematically raise money for missions. Since that time, WMU has helped lead Southern Baptist churches across the country to give $6.6 billion through the Annie Armstrong Easter Offering and Lottie Moon Christmas Offering—efforts begun by WMU to support missionaries. WMU’s unwavering focus on making disciples of Jesus who live on mission happens through missions discipleship, leadership development and compassion ministries, with Kingdom impact in every state and 39 countries. Based in Birmingham, Ala., national WMU is not a part of the Cooperative Program allocation budget and receives no funds from the Annie Armstrong Easter Offering or Lottie Moon Christmas Offering. National WMU is supported through the sale of magazines and products and from investments and charitable contributions.
