Virginia Chapter


The Virginia Board of Widow’s Mite Experience was formed in January 2010. A group of women came together embracing the vision of Widow’s Mite Experience and ready to impact the world for Jesus Christ. We have held several small auctions and events and have funded 25 wells to date plus provided over 1,200 water backpacks to those in need. If you live in the Richmond metropolitan area and would like to participate in raising money for a well, volunteer, or make a donation to WME Richmond, please contact us at You can have a well dedicated in your name, a loved ones name, a church or for any group you want to recognize! You may contact us at or by calling 804-360-3103. If you would like to make a donation to Widow’s Mite Experience, Richmond, it can be mailed to P.O. Box 29021, Henrico, VA 23242-0021
