Give to ensure future generations will understand and value the importance of missions. Such earthly investments yield eternal dividends; these truly are gifts that keep on giving, even beyond a lifetime.
What are the WMU of Texas Endowments?
Endowments have been established to help provide a secure financial base for the mission and ministries of WMU. The money placed in an endowment will never be spent; the funds are invested so that interest provides an ongoing stream of income year after year, decade after decade.
What will my money do?
WMU has seven different endowments. Give to the ministry that captures your passion and reflects your own missions’ heartbeat.

TOUCH TOMORROW TODAY ENDOWMENT is a partnership that began in 1999 benefiting WMU of Texas and national WMU.
