Decade Challenge

IWA gave us the opportunity to dream. To achieve. To lead. To serve. Now it is our turn to give that opportunity to the young women at the Academy today by giving to the IWA Annual Fund. Thank you for your commitment to the growth of our current and future Women of the Word, and the education and programs that support them!

Praised be the Incarnate Word!

About the Decade Challenge

The Decade Challenge is a friendly competition between decades for the highest participation and amount given to IWA. All gifts alumnae give from July 1 through June 30, count toward the Decade Challenge. The big push for the Decade Challenge runs between the Spring Alumnae Luncheon and Foundation Day, but you are welcome to give at any time.

Bragging rights go to the highest decade participation in overall giving and highest amount raised towards the IWA Annual Fund. Decade Challenge champs will receive recognition in The Word Magazine and the IWA website.

The IWA Annual Fund this year supports key areas like Campus Ministry, Fine Arts, Student Life, as well as our innovative Young Leaders Program, and much more!


IWA Alumnae exists to:

(1) sustain and enhance an engaged, vibrant community of IWA graduates and friends;

(2) help alumnae connect with the school through a variety of activities and communications; and 

(3) provide IWA with goodwill and support. Official IWA Alumnae correspondence is overseen by the Academy and is housed at the school at 609 Crawford Street in Houston, Texas. All authorized correspondence for IWA Alumnae will come from the school and will be promoted through our regular e-newsletter Alumnae Amor, our official Facebook page or The Word Magazine.
