Individuals establish endowments
at UMFA to support United Methodist causes that are meaningful to them. These endowments provide perpetual resources to programs and missions that turn dreams into reality.
UMFA assists in establishing endowments to
help local churches sustain and expand their ministries
that make disciples for Jesus Christ. The original gift remains
intact to assure perpetual support of local church ministries without reducing
the principal or utilizing funds in operating budgets. The interest earned is then used for impacting and strengthening the Church.
We educate local churches
in understanding endowment gifts and in developing endowment policies, serve as
resource persons for local church seminars, and consult with local church members
as they consider planned gifts to their local church. We also provide free, personalized presentations that explain the details and benefits of various gift plans.
