Women at the Well is a mission congregation. What this means is that our organization will never be financially self-supporting. This is because the women who constitute our congregation work in jobs which earn only $0.20 - 0.50 per hour. No matter how much they give of their earnings, they can never afford the full cost of our ministry.

We do, however, aim to be self-sustaining. This means that we build relationships and work with others in ways that will provide sufficient funding to support our ministry. Partner Organizations lie at the heart of these relationships.

Partner Organizations pledge their prayers, presence, gifts, service and witness in support of Women at the Well for a three-year period. In pledging their support, they express solidarity with the women incarcerated by the State of Iowa, and also become part of the foundation which assures the sustainability of our ministry into the future.

If you and your organization would like to become our Partner in ministry, simply download and complete our Partner Organization Agreement, and return a completed copy to us.

We are sincerely grateful for all of the Partner Organizations which have pledged their support to our ministry! For a complete list of these organizations, click here!
