Preparing for Tomorrow Today
By its design, the Foundation provides funding for projects and activities in each of several ministry areas of the church, which the Foundation identifies as Ministry Enhancement Accounts.
The Foundation accepts gifts, bequests, legacies, and donations, which are added to endowment funds. The capital accumulates as new assets are received and through careful investing for the long term. Projects approved by the board are funded with the income from these investments.
The First United Methodist Church Foundation, Inc. is a non-profit corporation that was established January 26, 1982. It supports the mission of the church and its programs in perpetuity.
