UMM is working to implement a new model and vision of men’s ministry. We believe that the result will be men involved in all four areas of focus which will reach the world for Christ. United Methodist Men are responding to the four areas of focus in the following ways:

New places for new people and renewal of existing congregations…

  • Awakening and building new spiritually as a means to revive congregations.
  • Training clergy and lay leaders in effective discipleship of men.
  • Encouraging and equipping men to serve their pastors and congregations as ministry partners.
  • Assisting UMC leaders beyond the USA with relevant training and resources.

The IRA Rollover option expires on December 31, 2014

This will be the last time you can make a tax-free distribution from your retirement account to the UMM Foundation.

If you are 70½ or older, inform your IRA administrators that you wish to make a "qualified charitable distribution" to the UMM Foundation. You will need to fill out a simple form that requests the federal tax ID number of the foundation (581487273).

The administrator will send the check directly to the UMM Foundation

You do not pay income tax on this distribution.

Charitable distributions cannot be made from a Roth IRA, 401(k), 403(b), SEP IRA, or SIMPLE IRA accounts—they don't qualify for this program.

You may use the rollover to establish an endowment honoring or memorializing a loved one or to simply fund ministries of UM Men.
