Our TEAM & NETWORK
A rich history and a common vision binds the people at the core of the Federation's life and movement.
The Centennial Fund is the WSCF’s endowment fund, established in 1995, to ensure the continuation of the Federation’s work of nurturing ecumenical leaders committed to working for justice and peace for generations to come. The Fund is working to strengthen its fundraising efforts so that it may remain in a position to support the WSCF for years to come.
The Fund is managed by a Board of Trustees, drawn from Senior Friends (former members and friends of the WSCF). The Board releases the income from the fund to support WSCF programmes, publications and leadership formation.

“ONCE an SCMer, ALWAYS an SCMer!”
The Senior Friends, or alumni, of the SCM and the WSCF are one of the unique components of SCM and the WSCF life. The SCM and the WSCF bring friendships, inspiration, and formation that, many Senior Friends report, give direction to their life’s course.
The Senior Friends serve the SCMs and the WSCF by joining as resource people for events, lending expertise and accompanying SCM and WSCF life, and contributing funding for the continuation of the work nationally, regionally, and internationally.
WSCF is a non-governmental organization in special consultative status with the Economic and Social Council at the United Nations (ECOSOC) and the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO); advisory status to the World Council of Churches (WCC) Central Committee; and member of the Ecumenical Advocacy Alliance and Act Alliance.
Ecumenism is by definition about collaboration. The WSCF believes that one of the keys to the future of the ecumenical movement is increased and deepened collaboration between partner organisations and networks – whether international, nongovernmental, or ecumenical.
Partnership is key to the success of the WSCF’s mission to empower and equip students and youth worldwide for faith and action; to making a tangible impact on the many issues we hold in common with various partners; and to finding creative new ways of living the ecumenical movement’s vision today.
