The Foundation’s grants program annually offers funding up to $2,000 to several local churches and church-related organizations as they develop new or expanded creative ministries. A “church-related organization” is any organization within our conference area that partners with a local United Methodist church and/or members of the United Methodist Church in our conference.

The Foundation has granted more than $1,000,000 to 200+ ministries since 1999. See some of the stories here.
