Year-End Giving, an Exciting 2015 and You
We at Dirty Girls/Whole Women Ministries have much to be thankful for this year. From almost 2,700 members in our online community, to the over 800 women who worked our new 90 Days to Wholeness program, and almost 200 downloads of our smartphone app, and more—it is an unprecedented time for women recovering from strongholds. Our goals for next year are even bigger.
For example, in August 2015, we are putting on Whole Women Weekend — a unique weekend intensive retreat for women seeking true and lasting inner healing from hurts & hang-ups, trauma, bad habits, addictions, and more and who wish to encounter God in a way they never have before. And you can partner with us to make Whole Women Weekend happen.
Our year-to-date donations received are a little over $16,000 — twice what we received in all of 2013. Which is a tremendous blessing! In 2015, we have a goal of raising $100,000. Yes, that is a lot of money, but with it we will be able to continue our current programs and present Whole Women Weekend FOR FREE for all women who wish to attend. How extraordinary would that be? If everyone who reads this letter gave just $25 — we’d meet our goal without a hitch.
Will you partner with us with a year-end gift? Or recurring gift?
Your gift of any size or duration is tax-deductible and will benefit all of our programs including WHOLE Women Weekend. And most importantly, we will break strongholds together.
Thank you for your generosity. Happy and merry to you and your loved ones this Christmas and in the New Year!

More About Our 2015 Financial Needs:
Our recurring expenses currently total $420/month. But our recurring donations currently total $220/month. By the grace of God, our needs are always met. Your generosity will enable us to do much more.
The total expenses for our 2015 retreat are $85,000 which includes 3-night accommodation for over 300 women, all meals throughout the retreat, all recreational activities, all printed materials, some advertising, travel expenses, speaking honorariums — everything. Our goal is to raise 50% of our total budget needs, but will continue to accept support thereafter, if possible.
Whole Women Weekend will take place August 27-30, 2015 on the beautiful Chesapeake Bay at Sandy Cove Christian Retreat Center in North East, MD. Our financial obligations/deposits to Sandy Cove are as follows:
First deposit of $2,000 due August 29, 2014(PAID) Second deposit of $5,112.50 due October 24, 2014(PAID)
- Third deposit of $10,668.75 due January 22, 2015
- Fourth deposit of $20,781.25 due March 20, 2015
- Fifth deposit of $20,337.50 due May 20, 2015
- Final deposit of $13,145.00 due July 27, 2015
While we believe more than half of our budget can be met through registrations, we don’t want anyone to be turned away because of an inability to pay. We are asking the community of Christ at large to help us pull this off. And that includes you!
