The United Methodist Foundation awards a limited number of grants to local United Methodist Churches and affiliated agencies of the Western Pennsylvania and Susquehanna Conferences of the United Methodist Church as well as account holders.
Grant making is an adjunct activity of the Foundation and is rooted in our educational ministry by providing an applied learning experience for completing a grant application process. These grants are intended for (but are not limited to) funding for ministries, programs, consultant and auditing services, stewardship resources, conference or meeting attendance or hosting costs, and emergency needs, among others.
Applications for funding may come from any church or ministry of or related to the Western Pennsylvania or Susquehanna Conferences of the United Methodist Church and must be for a need consistent with the mission of the UM Foundation.
Grants are made possible by funding from the Stewart Endowment and the Paul D. Taylor Ministry Opportunity Fund.
Before completing an application, please carefully review both our Grant Guidelines and How to Apply to ensure that the ministry or need for which you are applying meets the requirements of the Foundation's grant program.
Applications must be received during the grant application window. The application window for spring 2023 grants will be March 15 - April 17. All applications for Foundation grants must be submitted electronically via email to email@example.com using the Grant Application Form. Be sure to watch the on-demand webinar called “Ten Tips For A Successful Foundation Grant Application. The on-demand webinar will be available on March 9th.
