Foundation Donation Options

Dollars for Scholars

The Minnesota United Methodist Foundation (MNUMF) has joined the Dollars for Scholars program with the United Methodist Higher Education Foundation (UMHEF) to provide scholarship aid for United Methodist students from Minnesota who attend United Methodist-related schools, colleges, universities and seminaries in the United States.

Generosity Across the Generations

MNUMF encourages stewardship training for children through this set of four lessons which specifically address generosity through personal support of the local church. This curriculum is designed to help learners discover not only how generosity touches each of our lives in our everyday ordinary places and spaces, but also how we may be vessels of generosity to others in very important ways. Your support of Generosity Across the Generations enables more local churches to use the packet and resources and ongoing development of the program.

Clergy Leadership Training

MNUMF supports clergy leadership by offering scholarships for the Clergy Leadership Academy offered by the Minnesota Annual Conference. The Clergy Leadership Academy is a three-year learning experience designed to equip leaders with essential skills and practices for leading in such a time as this. Your support to this fund enables the financial edge to be taken off of clergy who enroll in the program.

Permanent MNUMF Admin. Fund
