Your gifts make a difference

United Methodists are connectional. The United Methodist Church's special giving structure ensures your generosity blesses as many people as possible in sustainable, strategic ways.

We respond to crises; we invest — long term — in vulnerable communities; we advocate for justice and peace; we implement effective solutions for diseases and viruses; we equip the next generation to lead the Church. In all of this, we share the good news of Jesus Christ.
